Hi everyone, I just dropped this new product to preorder on my shop!
This is a monthly subscription collage kit with different options to choose from. From the month of October 2021 I will release a paper pack with the topic “Natural World“.
Natural World Collage Kit
The subjects will be animals (portraits, with people, in their natural habitat), plants and flowers (photos and illustrations)
You can select this paper kit only, or the quarterly subscription
Each pack will include 1 roll of mt washi tape (colours differ on each one)
FREE UK standard shipping.
You will get 1 different collage kit each month
The topics for the next months will be Landscapes (natural, rural, city) and Portraits (faces, full body, anatomical)
At checkout the shipping costs will be higher because they will include 3 orders in total
Each pack will include a roll of mt washi tape (colours differ on each one)
FREE UK standard shipping.
In the gallery below I put some of the paper cuts that you will find on each kit. This is a sample gallery, because each pack will contain different papers, but the amount will be always the same. You can preorder yours HERE.
I am planning to create a series of collage kits to send over every month with different contents. I will make my selection of vintage paper cuts from magazines and books, while I will also add vintage postcards, photos and other “on topic” vintage finds.
I was wondering if any of you would be interested, and in case which topics would you like to receive. I can also offer you the possibility to pick the kits you want if you are not willing to get a subscription, so anyone can get something.
I will more likely have preorders set for the first kits, so I can organise the materials and offer you the best I can find. Please click on this. linkand check your favourite ones – thanks for your support on this!
I truly enjoy the surrealist hand cut paper collages by the London based artist K Young. These interventions are incredibly detailed and well crafted, and they recall me the noir cinema in some way.
K Young says: “reimagining existing objects and turning them into something new has been a preoccupation of mine for as long as I can remember, and it is this, together with a long-held passion for photography, which has led me to my working process today. I make hand-cut paper collages from found photographic material. Using editing, reframing, splicing, layering and juxtaposition, I reassemble images until a different narrative emerges. I then make these collages into photographs. By returning the image to some semblance of its original state, I am acknowledging its legacy. To me, the circle is complete”.
My art class From Fashion Ad To Protest is now available to download. I realised that many people couldn’t attend the live sessions, so I am creating the recorded version of some of them for everyone to enjoy.
See above the class presentation, and click here to download the complete version (you will get a link by email once you made your order).
This is the latest series that I am currently working on – is called “Floating Dreamers” and it’s focused on my research on patterns and abstractions.
Floating Dreamers is a series about my constant research on pattern and colour combinations. The title of this body of works is also connected to my fascination for the past, and the necessity to keep it “suspended” in time and space.
I didn’t have time to post all the pieces that I have done, but you can check what is available in my website below. On my Youtube channel I am also posting the work in progress of these pieces, so you can enjoy the process 🙂
Here’s another stack of works done a few months ago from the series “Mongolfiere” (Hot-air Balloons).
Mongolfiere (Hot-Air Balloons) is a sketchbook filled with altered vintage portraits ready to fly. I wanted to imagine the extension of each photo as an imaginary abstract world. Each subject represents a floaty and colourful balloon that walks freely into time and space.
See the whole collection below and let me know what do you think!
I have been lucky enough to have met in person Maliheh Zafarnezhad in her studio. She is an incredible talent and also an amazing woman. Maliheh is Iraninan and Irish, and her photo transfer collages are a celebration of her rich multicultural history.
These are a small selection of her latest works on wood blocks and ceramic plates. they are part of her series The New Normal and Objects Of Memories. I enjoy these sculptural explorations of her style. Go check her website and Instagram to see more of her works (the pieces on canvas are also stunning!).
Enjoy the enchanted works by the Canadian artist Julie Liger Belair. I love the way she also combines paper cuts with sculptural compositions made with polymer clay.
These are few words about how she describes her art practice: Fairy tales, legends, dreams and the surreal worlds they evoke have always been a part of the human experience; a way to make sense of our surroundings and explain our fears. As a child these captured my imagination, weaving themselves into the fabric of my personality. Because of this I am today a collector at heart, constantly collecting fragments of ideas and objects, each with their own little stories to tell. Combining them in different ways in my work, they form new narratives and meanings.
