Here is another brand new collage from the ArtPix production line, this time from the wonderful city of Prague...

I visited the city a few years ago and was drawn in to the enchanting and mysterious place. It has a hugely rich and complicated history, especially in the 20th century, but the city shows a resilience to survive and even find humour in its past.

I loved the architecture of the place and finding, around the corner from the obvious tourist sites, a chance to find that element from the various eras it has gone through. Be that a huge Communist statue or monument to Second World War resistance. 

The centre piece of this collage is the Petrin Observation Tower, a mini looking version of the Eiffel Tower, built in 1891. Around that is an example of the stout, but still decorative, Eastern European apartment buildings and a Modernist style shopping street.

As always I've sprinkled a huge variety of vintage images I have knocking about the ArtPix Archives. Some with an appropriately 30s to Noir to Cold War feel to them.

I've got so many more pix of Prague, I could do loads more collages of this amazing place!
