Eva Eun-Sil Han was born in Korea where she lived for 27 years. When she encountered the collages of Max Ernst did she start to use collage as a means of artistic expression. In her work she combines material from any kind of ready-made mass media, such as newspapers, magazines or old books. Eva Han prefers to use knife and glue rather than working with pixels on a computer screen, because it allows her to touch, feel and smell the different source papers. Especially old paper smells good to her.
The artist collages photographs, her own and others, often drawing and painting onto the paper. Many of them seem purely abstract and in most, the assemblage of images is in such bits and pieces they don’t seem meant to be discerned specifically.
REVOK is without doubt one of the most renowned graffiti writers on the planet. Although he’s traveled the world over, in his adopted hometown of Detroit, he’s been re-energized and has found grist for an entirely new form. This newer body of work, REVOK’s fantastic assemblages, are comprised of found materials from abandoned houses and buildings from throughout Detroit. These colorfully textured 3D collages are highly sought after and well documented in the book. Further, Made in Detroit contrasts the new thrust of his artistic output against a background of terrific on-location photography, cutting to the very soul of this enigmatic place. Printed in edition of 2500, every copy is individually spray painted by the artist.
