Who knew ripped posters could be so beautiful!

Crazy for the art of Jaques Villegle.

Born 1926 Quimper, Brittany. He first started producing in December of 1949. Works in mixed media. Famous for his alphabet and symbolic letters from ripped or lacerated posters. His work consists of layers of posters that have been ripped to reveal posters underneath. His work has primarily focused on the anonymous and on the marginal remains of civilization.
