a brief history of mixed media
The origin of this technique stems back further than you might expect. This approach to art-making has a rich history dating back to ancient civilisations where artists used pigments, charcoal and even animal fat to create their works.
The infamous Leonardo Da Vinci used oils, tempera and clay in his paintings during the Renaissance. The cubist art movement, led by Picasso and Braque in the 20th century, would see art created using collages and construction to their idea of art as they knew it. They had the mindset that art didn't need to be confined to one medium and could be created using a range of materials and techniques.
