Handiedan

The art of Dutch artist Handiedan involves a complex cut and paste mixture of digital and highly detailed sculptural hand cut collages, complimented by conscientiously collected antique ornamental frames.  With a background in photographic design (graduated), illustration and graphic design (self taught), Handiedan started working as a mixed media collage artist in 2007. Her accomplished and refined collage technique allows her for an artistic journey through past, present and future. The result is an almost kaleidoscopical visual exploration whose discoveries are sometimes immediately visible and sometimes hidden in plain sight. Since 2011 she has taken her collage artwork outside the gallery creating large scale wheat paste collages in Europe and in the U.S. Through working on walls, Handiedan has further experimented with technique and composition and has expanded the scope of her art towards a larger audience. Always curious and willing to experiment, in 2017 Handiedan engaged in virtual reality using Tilt Brush and she realized Handria, her first 3D virtual collage & drawing that was presented at Future Play Festival in Edinborough. Her work has been shown throughout the world and has been featured in several books, magazines and blogs.
