| February 6, 2020 | Style & Beauty

The handmade artworks of Maxwell N. Burnstein­ (—the foremost collage artist to emerge from Canada’s fashion industry—confront the rise in digital collage art with traditional analog techniques. Burnstein carefully crafts each image by deconstructing photographs into multidimensional artworks using an X-ACTO knife, then digitally uploading the finished products to allow for multiple applications. His work has prompted international artist residencies and collaborations with some of the world’s leading publications and brands.
