ARTIST STATEMENT


I am a Peruvian art designer. The Dada and Surrealism artistic movements serve as the main inspiration for my artwork.  My work is exclusively done manually, applying the classic collage technique without any digital retouching.

I use collage as a means of expression because I find absolute freedom to generate emotions, for which I utilize imagery from old magazines, books, and encyclopedias, that I cut and paste in a reconstruction game for providing new meanings to express my inner world and life experiences.

Through my work, I reflect on what we are made of, memories and what the subconscious mind stores to get in touch with the viewer's emotions.
