10 CONTEMPORARY MOSAIC ARTISTS TO TURN YOUR MOSAIC MINDSET UPSIDE DOWN
(3 min read)
Though mosaics date back to the 3rd millennium BC, this art is going through an unheard of rebirth. We’ve assembled the selection of artists that, in our opinion, are making a huge contribution to the contemporary mosaic art movement.
Sergio Policicchio skillfully balances photography, mosaics, and installation. His naturally “imperfect” tesserae that dramatically ranges in size breathes life into forms too flawless to be created by a human.
The mosaic designs of Marie-Laure float between metaphor and actual natural phenomena. Her sparkling tesserae decodes anything from frozen rivers to unseen galaxies.
In her futuristic tile mosaic artworks, Beatrice Serre rediscovers past. In her Big Bang series, she “restored” the big moment of our universe.
River stones, bicycle gear, or ceramic tiles – nothing sinks into oblivion with Laura Harris. According to the mosaicist, that’s how she pulls the fragmented world together.
Her mosaic artworks tell stories. The famous “Multiverse” (smaltis, lego pieces, and clockwork parts, just to name a few) creates a show-stopping 3D illusion. How not to get lost in it?
Sperling’s works bear the message to both current “epoch-alypse” generation and the future one. Her jaw-dropping “We Were Here Now” is no way about humankind’s accomplishments.
No words, just a fact – her tile mosaic designs are slightly billowing in the wind.
Angela Zimek merges graphics with mosaic art. Her Atmen [Breathing] series is a breath of fresh air.
Julie Richey utilizes “the innate opulence of mosaic materials” to craft unexpected forms. Will you dare to put on this piece of “draping” mosaics on?
The whimsical arcs of Giulio Menossi are no strangers to everything – from lego pieces to traditional marble. You’ll never stop finding new curves and details in this colorful intricacy.
These are only the icing of the “mosaic” cake. How about the filling?
