Creative step :
My first collage was conceived as I was creating an invitation card for a special event from cutouts of fashion magazines. A sense of passion and joy took over me and I have been creating ever since. I delve into all sorts of themes including travel, fashion and the sheer sublime – all that fascinates me and keeps me animated.
My inspired and gluttonous spirit gave birth to a collection that I exhibited last year in Paris – one of colourful silhouettes parading on the catwalk of fashion’s greatest designers.
This year, once again, couture prevails thanks to the mixture of textures and colors that inspired me ! I dabbled with the eccentricities of hair and the destructuring of faces – my interests lying in diverting the primary function of items and exploring the multiple facettes of human behavior. How versatile are we really ? Are we protecting ourselves or are we ignorant to our potential creativity?
Technical part :
Each collage creation is reproduced only twelve times, no matter the format. It’s numbered, signed, and printed out on a brushed aluminium plate, covered with bright PVC and includes a sash in the back to hang on a wall as the perfect finish.
