Something of a rarity in the field, Portuguese artist Hugo Barros manipulates images not with digital tools like Photoshop, but instead using the collage skills you learnt as a kid. Barros began making his mind-bending collages three or four years ago, taking inspiration from musicians like Animal Collective, The Liars, Radiohead, Explosions in the Sky, Washed Out, and Tame Impala.

The result is Collage, a series of original artworks crafted mostly from old magazines. Subject matters and sources vary from piece to piece, but the collages often play with huge contrasts, and there's an absurd streak running through the entire series.

Barros shares almost all of his artwork on his Tumblr, and also sells prints through an online store. Here's a selection of his finest work.
