Inspired by the sticker fragments that I used to cover the baby face, I wanted to make a personal celebration of the classic 8bit retro games. Everything turns out to have sense to me - a vintage baby portrait that recalls a personal childhood game tribute. A win win!
Pens, stickers and washi tape on vintage postcard.
• This is an original contemporary art collage realised on a vintage photo or postcard.
• All the works have clear signs of wear and tear, and needs to be handled with care.
I am an Italian experimental artist that lives in London. My creative research is mainly focused on handmade mixed media collages, but my interest also involves video art and photography. The forgotten memories as vintage found pictures, postcards, messages and other random materials, are the obsession that drove me to start this art journey.
