magic realism: THE VIBE OF THE CITY AS AN inspiration.
Inventory 307 topics and imagery come from the worlds of mythology, the unreal, the absurd and the impossible. They are also reminiscences of the past: legends and distant memories from the childhood.
As an antithesis, their execution is nurtured by the city: industrial raw materials, such as concrete, are used for the production of objects and jewelry. Dark alleys with multi-layered painted walls are the stimulus to create polyptychs and accessories.
