Inspired by the world around him, young digital artist Justin Peters creates surreal and serene collages that merge unexpected elements to great success. At just 22 years old, he’s carrying on a long tradition of collage art, which has evolved from Cubist masters to the contemporary age of digital art.
Using images he sources from stock photography sites, Peters blends together his surreal scenes, which often have a sentimental tinge. From a boy sitting on the beach next to a glowing moon to a girl diving underwater, transforming into a jellyfish, Peters selects the perfect combination of elements to elicit emotion.
And while he’s inspired by Surrealists like Salvador Dalí, Vladimir Kush, and Rob Gonsalves, Peters has cultivated a style uniquely his own in the short time he’s been creating digital art collages. Beginning just over a year ago during the summer of 2016, he’s already emerged as a talent to watch. Particularly drawn to elements of science and nature, he manages to instill each piece with a sense of realism that is suddenly broken upon close inspection. By keeping the emotional charge alive in each collage, he’s able to surprise and delight his viewers through the subtle details of each composition.
