Collage Illustrator’s Statement

I am a collage illustrator who seeks to create narratives by combining images of old and new magazines with a variety of three-dimensional objects and photos captured by me.
My artwork aims to celebrate the uniqueness in diversity.

My first collage was at the age of 11. Not the work of a genius but definitely that of someone with unique aesthetic style at a very young age. I have always communicated my thoughts and emotions through the art of making collages, far from knowing that what I was doing at that time.

Magazines and newspapers opened a new world for me; they educated me about different lives and cultures, introduced me to new people and faces, something which I never experienced in my remote village where I grew up. This marked the beginning of my career as a collage artist focusing on visual stories.

This form of art makes it possible for me to create a world full of visual metaphors, and assumes a very form of expression since I was not trained in drawing. There is always a creative problem-solving process; not everything is readily available in magazines or papers. This gives birth to new challenges and allows me to visualise new creative solutions making this medium always fun and interesting for me.

(so intense, mama mia).
