Awesome Collages of Paper Mountain Climbers

Graphic designer Erwan Soyer has constructed a series of brilliant paper collages that depict mountain climbers venturing up imposing ranges. Equipped simply with a scalpel, paper, and some adhesives, the Monpellier, France-based artist produces an intriguing take on the adventurous sport. Creativity is abound as Soyer puts discarded sheets of text to good use in the form of mountain range silhouettes.

The artist even takes his project a step further. More than just your typical collage, Soyer adds a sense of texture to his works by assembling the pieces with crinkles in them, echoing the coarse surfaces of the alps. At the same time, he does not lose sight of the materials he's using. We're made fully aware that we're looking at papers from novels and various paper-based media filled with written words. These collages are like visual representations of both ambitious athletic and literary adventures.
