Since we last featured works by collage artist Eugenia Loli (previously) her works have popped up all over the place from Wired Magazine, New Scientist, and a recent series of 5 collages for Cosmopolitan out next month (she also made the collage that appears atop this very publication). The nurse-turned-programmer-turned-journalist-turned-artist first began exploring digital collages in 2013 by scanning images from old vintage magazines and science textbooks that she assembled in Photoshop and shared on her Tumblr. You can follow more of Loli’s work on Instagram or Facebook, and she sells prints and other things in her shop.
