Monica Carvalho challenges herself by combining her images in an atypical way. Her passion – and mission – is to create images that make you look twice …
“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see. “
This quote has been Monica’s artistic practice guideline since her obsession with optical illusions and surrealism began ten years ago. She makes digital collages, which she calls “photomontages” and She uses only pictures she has taken herself.
She combines photos of her travels and her body on Adobe Photoshop. She chose this tool to express herself because of the endless photo-editing possibilities it offers.
She uses the pictures to tell something about the world we live in.
