Jigsaw Puzzle Mashups by Tim Klein ZzzClan


Putting together a Jigsaw puzzle can be delightfully frustrating and Vancouver based artist Tim Klein wants to add in some extra pieces. Yes, Klein practices the obscure art of ‘puzzle montage,’ taking pieces from various jigsaw puzzle sets and re-arranging them to form a new stunning image.

Klein says he was inspired by the work of art professor Mel Andringa, whom he credits as the pioneer. He says he first read about his work in a magazine article from 1988. Klein adds:

“Jigsaw puzzle companies tend to use the same cut patterns for multiple puzzles. This makes the pieces interchangeable. As a result, I sometimes find that I can combine portions from two or more puzzles to make a surreal picture that the publisher never imagined. I take great pleasure in “discovering” such bizarre images lying latent, sometimes for decades, within the pieces of ordinary mass-produced puzzles. As I shift the pieces back and forth, trying different combinations, I feel like an archaeologist unearthing a hidden artifact.”
