Glitched Collages By Giacomo Carmagnola

Italian digital artist Giacomo Carmagnola creates a spectacular collage in the style of glitch art. From the burning monk in “Saigon” to Jesus’s crucifixion in “Meltchrist” – the digital artist combines the old and new to create a symbolic modern image.

“I’m completely absorbed by glitch art. I’ve always been attracted to its aesthetics; I’m not talking about philosophy or higher concepts, but just its plain visual pleasure,” says the Italian-born artist.

“I see these images as an alternative beauty. I find it extremely fascinating how the same image can change so much by keeping its original ‘skeleton’. Of course they’re also visually impactful. But before this, I find them simply beautiful.“

“I don’t think that being born in Italy influenced me in any way; I mean, every other country would have been the same for me. The Internet helped ‘open my mind.’ I had something like an ‘image overload’, which then permitted me to express my ideas.”
