Carl CrawfordA self-taught, free-lance artist, Crawford has developed a unique style that he calls “Collage Illusion”. He creates his pieces by cutting out colors from magazine articles and assembling them on glass to form his desired image, giving his audience the illusion of an oil painting. Using only donated magazines Collage Illusion is “recycling at its finest.” Crawford uses this technique to capture the movement and feel of Jazz music and expressive dance forms. “Collage Illusion” has won Crawford several awards and recognition throughout the nation. He was the featured artist at the 2010 Chicago Jazz Festival, Best in Show (2010) and Most Unique (2011) for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Honorable Mention for the Piccolo Spoleto Art Fair in Charleston SC, Best in Category at Chicago’s Gold Coast Art Fair, Best in Mixed Media at Glencoe Illinois Art Fair, Best in Category at Virginia Beach’s Board Walk Art Festival, the Juror Award at Shreveport’s Red River Revel, 1st Place Award at the Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts in Eatonville, FL and many more.
