Marine Hugonnier calls attention to newspaper design in classic print media by replacing the images with geometric patterns.

The French artist Marine Hugonnier colorblocks vintage newspapers, drawing fresh attention to layout design in print media and exploring the relationship between language and image. Hugonnier’s ongoing series ‘Art for Modern Architecture‘ helps people see familiar formats in new ways, by replacing the iconic photographs on newspaper front pages with blocks of color. The selected newspapers refer to memorable events like the death of Michael Jackson, Obama’s inauguration and the fall of the Berlin wall. The images that accompanied these news reports are blocked out with colorful geometric patterns, based on the paintings of Ellsworth Kelly.
