Surreal Abstract Tiger Skull Collage – Black

Tiger skull collage on black square, floating over atmospheric background. Surreal abstract art in black and white by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Protean Black.

The original color version of this, Protean, was created a while ago. But lately I’ve been on a black and white variation kick, and though not all images work in black and white, I think this one is quite effective.

Most of my black and whites require extra tonal adjustment from the color versions because you don’t have color providing contrast between elements (it’s funny just how bad a straight desaturation can look). This one needed the background darkened considerably, and the subject lightened.
