Cristiana Couceiro is a freelance illustrator, working and living in Lisbon, Portugal.
“I have been making collages since I was a kid. I used to sit on the floor and tear up magazines for hours, joining pieces of paper of different shapes and colours together. Later I learned how to use a pair of scissors and some glue and started filling notebooks, walls and furniture. Then I just learned how to edit pictures on the computer and stopped gluing everywhere.
I collect memories, personal and collective, national and international. My collages are made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new one. They may include newspaper titles, vintage photos, pieces of paper, portions of other artworks, book pages, placed on a new piece of paper.”
She’s a fantastic proof that Portugal makes such a good design!
