Andrew Soria is a digital artist creating photo collages of urban environments. Using original photographs, these cityscapes are seamlessly stitched together and composited in photoshop. This technique allows a surreal point of view, capturing the culture and identity of the city.
Soria’s vibrant digital collages offset his own photography with a heavy dose of Photoshop, creating overwhelming cityscapes that speak to our never-ending search of perfection. While the skyscrapers and pawn shops found in his work may have a cartoonish quality, they attempt to reflect a very real longing on the part of the city’s unseen inhabitants. Soria’s skylines and underpasses overflow and use the cityscape as a stand-in for the individual in constructing a metaphor for our desire to fill the holes we see within ourselves.
