Dynamic Mixed-Media Collages by Charles Bentley

The artist’s artwork leverages fashion photography and the natural world to create dynamic, surreal compositions that render a metaphorical process of individual growth and decay. Charles Bentley often works with bright gradient backgrounds, pastel colors, and double exposure to make his artworks spot out with an interesting and unique style.

 

 

Marrying the Human Body With Nature

In this ongoing self-initiated project, Bentley combines organic elements with human bodies to produce fascinating collages. It is beautiful to see how he brings humans and nature together in a single image, often having you stare at the final results for a long time due to his fine eye for detail.
