❝These are my collage works I have made between the 2011-2015 years. The various images I used are reflections of my instinct and my mind which interpret the thing happened around me into the vibrant and complex images. I do not want to tell any particular story or concept through them, but I would rather let the audiences interpret by themselves which the result and feel would be different from each other. My life, my art and the way I look at the world are layered in these collages. Hope you enjoy!
Long live collage!
—Double O Seth
