Hello, my name is Xenia and I am a photographer (black and white, art, street, and landscape photography are my favorite expressions) which started exploring mixed media arts, graphic design, acrylic painting, and collage. My artworks are a combination of original acrylic paintings on paper or canvas, hand-cut newspaper collages, photography, and digital editing.
The work that I’m presenting here is part of the Messy Collages series. I chose that name because we are surrounded by a perfectly Photoshopped world in media / visual design in general, so I wanted to leave some “rough edges” on my work and create imperfect images that are visually interesting. I could say that visually appealing imperfections are the main theme of the Messy Collages series. Hope you like it!
