Artist and architect Federico Hurtado (b. 1961, Buenos Aires) lives and works in San Isidro, Argentina. Using old book covers as a canvas for his often wittily titled collages, he manually cuts and pastes images from late 1800s and early 1900s publications to create a wonderfully whimsical world of gentle hues and strange goings on. He also uses found objects to make assemblages of Joseph Cornell-like boxes and to create sculptures and “constructions”.

"Nirvana tapped into a voice that was yearning to be heard. Nirvana were kicking against the mainstream. They spoke truth and a lot of people listened."

Printed in Minneapolis, Minnesota by Ben Lafond, February 2014. Produced for Disney x Mondo “Nothing’s Impossible” exhibit in Austin, TX - March 2014.
Starring Remy from Pixar’s Ratatouille, Aaron’s most recent print debuted at the “Nothing Impossible” show during SxSW a few weeks back. The first image above shows the variant on brown paper, followed by the regular edition on white. I’m particularly fond of the variant - the vintage feel of the kraft paper works great with Aaron’s illustration style.
*HELP FUND THIS KICKSTARTER PROJECT*
I’ve always had a fascination with architectural lines and how they interact with one another. In April of 2012, I visited Manhattan for the first time. I was immediately struck with the way that the modern metropolis skyline interacts and connects with everything around it.
I would like the opportunity to shoot in New York City once again capturing its stunning urban landscapes. Using these images, I will create a book that will explore the reality and unreality of how those lines intersect.
My book will feature my unique composite images that I create using a variety of photo editing software tools. I use multiple exposure images that fold onto themselves, transcend reality and find beauty within complexity.
To make this book a reality, I will need financial backing for travel, the expenses incurred while exploring the city and book publishing costs. My goal is for $5000. Anything above that goal will be put toward equipment upgrades which would enhance future pictures.
ARENT THESE COOL? THIS PROJECT ENDS TOMORROW!

The only school where the men and women win in the same year. And they did it TWICE!
