NYC-based artist Fred Tomaselli applies his colorful, playful approach to collage and has a go at the front page of The New York Times, in the process creating a colorful yet deft political commentary of current events of the past few years. For those familiar with his larger-scale work, the look will be familiar. By making deceptively simple additions to front page photos, Tomaselli has succeeded in making a roundup of some of the horrible news of recent years that’s somehow not as depressing as it might otherwise be.
