Map Collages – Matthew Cusick

The Stylesight graphic team are loving Matthew Cusick’s amazing portraits and landscapes, which are painstakingly created by collaging old geographical maps.

Matthew Cusick from Dallas, Texas uses basic tools to reconfigure entire networks of roads, rivers and detailed map areas to create intricate artworks that look like paintings and drawings if viewed from a distance.

Originally from New York, Matthew Cusick graduated from Cooper Union in 1993, and had his first exhibition just two years later. Since then, his masterpieces have been showcased around the world. Inspired by topography, the artist states that he likes to “catalog, archive, and arrange information and then dismantle, manipulate, and reconfigure it.”
