Superheroes Bandy Together to Complete Contemporary Pop Artwork
How do you feel about collages? How about Marvel and DC Comics classic superheroes? Mike Alcantra, hailing from Austin, Texas, thinks they’re the coolest thing since bread came sliced, which is why he specializes in creating Comic Collage Art. His pieces range in size from 12” x 12” to 24” x 36” and are currently selling like hotcakes. Price tags go from $100 all the way up to $400 and the artwork is exclusively featured on gallery wrap canvas. They are genuine collages, with elements that include actual images torn from the pages and covers of vintage comic books and magazines.
Alcantra thus chooses to pay tribute to an art form that has been derided by many, yet has managed to enliven and brighten up many a childhood, from one generation to the next. His work is an homage to the level of artistry and attention to detail displayed by the graphic artists involved in the creation of some of the world’s best loved characters. The mélange of elements, characters and styles comes together under Alcantra’s vision and creates impressive pieces, ideal for decorating any home with so much as a tinge of pop-art to its décor.
