ANNA2.jpg

Anna Sandalaki-A collage is kind of a mirror (and is, maybe, a fragmented mirror). The visual reflection of our feelings, thoughts, concerns, memories and dreams. Each one of us can read different realities or stories “on” this boundless and magic looking glass. 

Anna enjoys creating visuals in black and white and visuals from a surrealist point of view, through which she can explore the potential of the inevitable and worthwhile alternation of the bright and dark side of ourselves. 

The materials used in her collages are mainly paper from second-hand books, vintage or recent magazines, as well as spray paint. Other media also, plus stencil techniques for the envisaged composition. 

Main influences and sources of inspiration are people, indie rock, ambient music, swing, photography, nature, doubt, anxiety and dark chocolate. 

Anna studied Social Policy & Social Anthropology in Athens, but ventured into collage art. Right now she is based in Chania, Greece.
