What is Collage art: Collage is indeed a technique in art creation, commonly utilized in the visual arts but also found in music. This method involves assembling various forms, such as images, materials, or elements, to create a new and cohesive whole. In visual arts, collages often consist of cut-and-pasted materials, such as photographs, newspaper clippings, fabric, or any other items that can be adhered to a surface. Similarly, in music, collage can involve combining and juxtaposing different sound elements, samples, or musical fragments to create a unique and layered composition. The essence of collage lies in the creative juxtaposition and arrangement of diverse elements to form a unified and meaningful artistic expression.
