Collage or not?: Aaron Ashwood, Jesse Treece, Gabe Islas


One of the central concepts for Twin Beast is that we are not about art in the name of the apotheosis of any individual. So, any time we show art, we make sure that we incorporate our friends, as well as some new strangers. Looking at great art is an amazing privilege, but we think that participating in art is the best. So, when we found out that we could use the Space 15 Twenty blog in addition to the gallery we knew we had to roundup the homies from all over. This post is part of a three part series highlighting nine collage artists. Some of them are “famous” on Instagram, and some of them are humble geniuses fulfilling themselves in relative obscurity. What they all have in common is a dedication, passion, and something worth paying attention to.


Whether you are startled by the gruff and slick ethos of Aaron Ashwood, stricken by the stunning renditions of Jesse Treece, or enraptured by the darkest depths of Gabe Islas, these are all people who are using old paper to paint the future. We hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we do.
