Photographer and mixed-media artist Vik Muniz is best known for repurposing everyday materials for intricate and heavily layered recreations of canonical artworks. Layered appropriation is a consistent theme in Muniz’s work.
The digital C-prints that comprise this eight-part series (Repro: Eight Color Spectrum), present a blizzard of art-historical images — all of them culled from books. Combined in layers at stupefying density, they rival in complexity and virtuosity collages made by Hannah Höch, Romare Beardon, Jess Collins and Bruce Conner.

The Skateroom’s main aim is to empower young people around the globe using art and skateboarding. From graffiti and street art to fine art and photography, The Skateroom’s decorative decks appeal to collectors and art enthusiasts alike.
Each time The Skateroom releases a new artist range, part of the proceeds are donated to Skateistan – an NGO that works with young people in Afghanistan and Cambodia. The Skateroom uses a 5:25 policy: it donates 5% of the turnover or 25% of the profit from every sale – whichever number is greater.
