Collage is the art of arranging existing images in combination with other elements (wallpaper or text such as newspaper) to create a composite work of art.
It can add depth and interest or be used to tell a story.
It has been used for hundreds of years and made a resurgence in the early 20th Century when Braque & Picasso helped make it a distinctive part of modern art.
