How can I possible maintain a collage blog without mentioning Wangechi Mutu?..."Wangechi Mutu was born and raised in Kenya and came to the United States in the mid-1990s. She is known for hallucinatory images in which she combines collage and ink drawing to create flamboyantly distorted figures that reflect contemporary society’s obsession with physical appearance..."
She doesn't appear to have her own website, but you can view more pix on Saatchi or here. Follow the link in the title to visit her work at SF MOMA>>>

Her work reminds me of Hannah Hoch, but with more flamboyancy...more vibrancy of color. I do like her textures...they are so lush.
