Handmade collage

" Making a collage for me is something chaotic, you can start with an idea and finish with completely different one. "

I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since 2013 I have been working with the collage technique, developing a very personal style, experimenting and complementing it with other techniques such as painting, sewing, among others. I consider myself a collector of vintage images which enables me to create unique compositions, visual stories and universes. 

For several years I have been giving workshops in different cities and institutions. 

In November 2021 I moved to Zagreb looking for new adventures and to continue developing my artistic career. 

Nowadays I also make murals and abstract and geometrical designs with different techniques, giving birth to a new era in my production. This new project is called RISCO.

I started making handmade collage in 2013. I always loved the vintage aesthetic, old books and images. So the process for me began when I started looking for original vintage material that I use extracted from magazines, books, maps etc.

 

I usually go to second hand libraries and markets. Then, from  all the material I choose the most interesting images and start making the collage.

 

Making a collage for me is something chaotic, you can start with an idea and finish with completely different one.
