Yesterday my friend introduced me to the work of Brazilian artist Mariana Valente, of which he bought a piece a while ago. I ended up staring at her works for quite a while, loving all the details in her colorful collages.
I particularly like the little romantic scenes in her shadow boxes, of which you can find some images below.
Based in Rio de Janeiro, Mariana uses lots of different materials (including vintage photographs, magazines and postcards) to create very diverse, powerful pieces. Her work has been featured in various exhibitions throughout Brazil. For many more, visit Mariana on her website & follow her on Instagram.
