„My collage work revolves around language.
My main influences are my love of typography, Futurism, and architecture.
For me, collage is the perfect medium to express myself. The idea of liberating letters from the meaning we give them as a society fascinates me.
Most of the time, I like to challenge what we think we read by giving the letters other shapes and losing parts of the words in order to question our brains’ automatic responses.
It is extremely interesting to see how we think we read a word that wasn´t there or how we are influenced by typography, colors, and design.

Sometimes I use a word or a sentence in my collages as an exercise of stream of consciousness; most of the time with a pinch of irony and humor.“
