ABOUT US

We are visual artists who tackle socialised aesthetic production. Faced with a given aesthetic problem, we elaborate concepts, which will become percept in the construction of the visual text. What is important for us is the creation of visual codes, in order to then overcast the textual outlines. For this we draw on various literary sources and the passage of terms. We work exclusively with Canson® papers, focussing on their application as a medium, which offers an unusual way of aesthetic work. In Canson® papers we find the ideal material to develop our projects, since we have a very wide variety of colours, textures, grains, weights, taking advantage of their durability, since they are pigmented in pulp, a property that is essential for the application of certain techniques.
