THE PROCESS

Watch as the artists make Jim Morrison and Madonna appear before your eyes.                                                                                               

elmgARTS creates original portraits by hand-cutting vinyl albums, album covers and other collectibles. The artists then spend hundreds of hours transforming the fragments into a portrait that is assembled and mounted onto canvas. 

ElmgARTS original pieces include tongue-in-cheek double meanings. Both subtle and overt, these call attention to current and historical pop culture, provoking interesting conversations amongst the viewers.
