Faces [UN]bonded by Marcelo Monreal

Marcelo Monreal’s Surreal Collages Replace Our Insides With Beautiful Blooms

Marcelo Monreal is a Brazilian collage artist who cracks skulls in the most beautiful way possible. Digitally splitting parts of models and celebrities faces (Christopher Walken and Kate Moss are among them), he fuses beautiful blooms with the broken shapes.

Small, colorful flowers grow from behind eye sockets, in the place of noses, and out of mouths. This surreal series is called Faces [UN]bonded. In Monreal’s opinon, people don’t often tell us who they really are.

Instead, they keep parts of their real selves hidden. He opens them up with his collages and reveals the rare moments in which we see the beauty that’s behind their appearance.
