Failed Dentist Turned Conceptual Artist Charms Us With Her 'Blingy' Collage Work

Meet Instagram phenomenon Sara Shakeel, a Conceptual Collage Artist based in Islamabad, Pakistan. Bored with her former life as a dentist, Sara started exploring the world of collage art. Starting off playing with cellphone apps like picsart and pixabay, her work soon progressed to photoshop and beyond.

Well known for her dreamy surreal collages using diamonds as a metaphor, her style brings contrasting elements together making the imagery all the more impressive. 

Each image/video feels oddly realistic, albeit totally fantastical in nature.

Her Instagram fame grew almost overnight. Now sitting at 182k followers and still growing, shes surpassed so many other artists in this style of work. 

'Bling' isn't this artist's only style of work. Although she seems to stick the with analog photography style, she works less ostentatious subject matter into some of her work.

Sara still isn’t sure if she’ll ever be a good photographer. But she continues to grow and create. Whether editorial or spiritual she creates works of art that appeal to us on another level.
