Mesmerizing Wall Collages Made of Paper and Plastic Cups

New York-based artist Lisa Hoke creates colorful wall collages out of an assortment of disposable items. Working extensively with paper and plastic cups, the artist installs each of her multilayered murals in eye-catching patterns. She playfully transforms each room into a magnificent spectacle full of snake-like formations of multihued cups as well as flattened cereal boxes and various candy wrappers.

Hoke says of her own large-scale work, “My room-sized collages are derived from cardboard and paper packaging, reflecting the amazing unappreciated properties of colorful disposable consumer products.” She adds, “Castaway treasures become my tools for expression of beauty.”

One of Hoke's newest pieces (at the bottom of this post) is currently on display at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art through April 13, 2014. The artist also has an upcoming exhibition of her work at the Sarasota Museum of Art in January 2014.
