Margarida Girão is a Collage Illustrator who seeks to create narratives by combining images of old and new magazines with a variety of three-dimensional objects and photos.
“My first collage was at the age of 11. Not the work of a genius but definitely that of someone with unique aesthetic style at a very young age. I have always communicated my thoughts and emotions through the art of making collages, far from knowing that what I was doing at that time.
Magazines and newspapers opened a new world for me; they educated me about different lives and cultures, introduced me to new people and faces, something which I never experienced in my remote village where I grew up. This marked the beginning of my career as a collage artist focusing on visual stories.” ❤
