Newspapers, magazines, many images, scissors, glue, clippings: these are the fundamental and essential elements for the incredibly creative art of the artist and illustrator Lola Dupre who recomposes and transform fragments of images.
Lola Dupre lives and works near Glasgow where she creates collages analogically and then finalises them digitally but without the use of Photoshop. She feels close to the Dada movement of the early 20th century but also to other artists of the present and the past.
“I think collage is like painting with paper instead of paint. My art is definitely influenced by artists like Jean-Paul Goude and David Hockney, as well as Keith Haring, Caravaggio, Steven Meisel, Serge Lutens and Yayoi Kusama”
Working with paper and scissors, Lola Dupre stretches, enlarges, crumples and abstracts portraits, animals, fashion photos and everything that fascinates her, giving us her personal interpretation of what we use to see and experience.
A perfect blend of genius, dexterity, meticulous cut and paste work, Dadaism, pop art, love for detail, curiosity and that pinch of humor and irony that makes everything unpredictable.
Lola Dupre has illustrated the prestigious covers of Time Magazine, the New York Times, the Penguin Classics and held assignments with Nike Basketball and The Atlantic Magazine.
