Santiago, Chile based artist Ignacio Paredes aka BAREFOOTONSLUGS mixes analogue techniques with digital in his work that is mostly focused on collages. His art is inspired in his 12 year old self -a mixture of grotesque, morbid and spiritual thoughts- all compressed into his artwork.

Using torn bits of ornately patterned Japanese paper, paint, sequins, and other materials, Maria Berrio makes intricate collages that evoke dreams, myths, and fairy tales. Often populated with female figures, her compositions also feature animals, flowers, and mythical beings set within heavily patterned surroundings. Though her scenes appear otherworldly, Berrio draws from her own thoughts and experiences as she crafts each piece.
