" Liz Tokatlilar: Williamsburg-based graphic designer and art director Liz Tokatlilar has been creating collage works for the past three years and enjoys the freedom the technique gives her to express a variety of realities and stories in one layout. “Every image is from unique sources; therefore, finding the right image that fits into the story takes time,” she says.
Tokatlilar turns to “old magazines, digital galleries, a scanner, and Photoshop” to make her art, which results in a vision that, at times, has included modern skyscrapers alongside ancient kings, photo cameras, dead revolutionaries, retro convertibles and pious saints. As an interactive way of storytelling, Tokatlilar also creates animated collages. ''
