Photoshopping is so out! At least that’s what Scotland-based artist Lola Dupre must think. Lola is a master at the art of cutting and pasting—the old fashion way—with a pair of scissors and some Elmer’s.

Lola’s main work revolves around creating hilariously exaggerated portraits like the ones above. Her creative process begins with a mental picture of her subject and the setting she will place them in. She then searches the Internet for images that are high-res enough for her to crop, print and eventually begin cutting up.

Currently, Lola is working on a large-scale collage to be affixed to the side of a building or a large wall. It is our hope that her work inspires others to put down the mouse—at least for a little bit—and pick up a pair of scissors. Because it is always refreshing to here about artists creating incredible images using the most rudimentary of mediums and tools.
