Although Here Comes Ingo is technically a picture book for children, it can easily qualify as an art book. This book is a well orchestrated visual story that familiarizes children with figurative collage, an ancient art techniques. Each illustration is a multilayered collage on paper (made by hand) with special attention paid to the Disney-like palette and the carefully orchestrated arrangement of various animal, insects, birds, grass and trees paper cut outs in order to come up with a final composition that is as Surreal as it is imbued in suggestive possibilities. In other words, each book page-collage is “a painting made with scissors” as Henri Matisse famously put it in reference to his paper compositions. Here Comes Ingo’s artistic language is very inclusive and issues an open invitation to the readers to add to the story and take it as far as their imagination can stretch.
