Arturo Herrera is a Venezuelan contemporary artist born in 1959, who lives and works in Berlin and New York. Herrera’s work include sculpture, wall painting, photography, collage and more.

Today I would like to highlight his collage works, which he has been practicing since the beginning of his career.

Using fragments of images from founding cartoons and coloring books, he creates a hybrid context that explores the contradiction between memory and strangeness, innocence and brutality.

His collages are near the limit of figuration and very close to abstraction. His work is part of the MOMA‘s collection, in  New York.
