Mindblowing, Bizarre and Provocative Collages by Ffo

Ffo is a Moscow-based artist who creates surreal collage artworks from anatomical illustrations, classical art, 1950’s pop culture images and Art Nouveau prints. Ffo’s source materials include works by pin-up artists like Alberto Vargas and Gil Elvgren, early-20th-century German artist Wilhelm Gallhof, and pioneer of anatomy illustration N. H. Jacob.

“I’m focusing on making collages cuz it’s a really great way to express yourself, for me it’s also a symbol of contemporary world – a hard mix of different people, styles, cultures, eras, like there are no borders between art and reality anymore. It’s very beautiful, multi-layered, provocative and bizarre.”

Ffo describes themselves as “a stalker” who takes “inspiration [from] almost from everything” but mainly life: “People are my main inspiration, their appearance, relationships, conversations, feelings. Allmost all my works represent my own emotions and desires and means a lot for me.”
