Hollie Chastain

I’ve had this photo on my desktop for a few weeks but have only now gotten around to looking into the artist who is responsible for this lovely, layered illustration.  Meet Hollie Chastain, a remarkably talented artist who specializes in recycling vintage photography, used paper, pen and ink into expressionistic collage work.  Each piece displays emotion through colorful force, the characters seeming to emote pigment into intricate whorls and polychromatic beams.  The effect is captivating, displaying childhood wonder or elderly dismay with a pure, heartfelt aesthetic.  Prints of her work are available through PosterCabaret or Chastain’s Etsy shop.  Hello Christmas list!
