Who Knew??!

Well, of course we knew about the legendary jazz musician, Louis Armstrong. His contributions to American music have been well documented and he continues to inspire young jazz musicians even today.

What we didn't know however is that "Satchmo" or "Pops" as he was nicknamed was also a prolific collage artist!!

In fact, we just discovered a book entitled "Satchmo: The Wonderful World and Art of Louis Armstrong." Filled with beautiful reproductions of his collages and interesting stories of his many achievements.

We are totally inspired!

Take a look at some of his amazing work:




Look at the wall of collage!
