Gabi Trinkaus

Self-described "media thief" Gabi Trinkaus is well-known for reappropriating magazines by cutting up glossy pieces and applying them to canvas to critique the aesthetic of mass media. By combining portraits, text, and extravagant objects like champagne, Trinkaus carefully comments on a broader culture of material consumption, as well. Her collages have so much breadth, in addition to their depth, that it's easy to imagine Kanye being a fan of hers.
