Emotion and color- reinterpreting Henri Matisse work digitally

Henri Matisse has always been one of my favorite artists, his choice of colors and shapes never fails to fascinate me..

Few days ago I wanted to experiment collage digital art inspired by recreating some of his famous work.. in addition I used vintage photos from the web in a attempt to express some of the spiritual qualities I admire such as peace, joy, adventure and human connection.

I tried to maintain Matisse style in choosing bold colors to shape the background for the overlaying vintage photos. The contrast between the colorful background and the b&w image triggers focus on the body language and the emotion conveyed in it where the colors of the background translates these feelings.
