Announcement    Fine Art Prints, collages vintage style and screen prints inspired by Italian fashion to decorate your home.
Hello! My name is Maria Grazia Preda and I am a collage artist. I cut out Italian Mid Century fashion magazines, of which I love the elegance and style. Female women in impeccable and perfect poses, which, however, combined with ironic and feminist phrases become contemporary and timeless.
Fine Art prints on paper, original collages that still smell of glue and old newspapers, and the very latest arrivals, the 100x70 cm screen print posters.
If you are looking for an original gift for your friends, or to say something special to your loved one, my collage and Prints can be the ideal choice. You can choose a ready-made work or write to me to commission your personalized gift, with the service:
SAY IT WITH A COLLAGE!
How does it work? It’s easy: you call me, tell me something about the person to give the gift to, and I prepare a customized collage, choosing the image that most closely resembles the person, and assembling with the best words to compose the sentence you have always wanted to say. For gifts that hit the mark!
The journalist Francesca Reboli described my work on VOGUE Italy in this way:
“(Women of the 1950s) inspire the work of Maria Grazia Preda, an artist who invented a genre: the collage vintage. With her "dancing" scissors she cuts out images, words, photographs from vintage women and then "mount" them, recontextualized, in collages. So photos of perfect bon ton young ladies, always smiling and confident, are combined with contemporary claims, such as "The girl who was NOT looking for a husband. New in Italy". The result is mildly ironic, delicately pungent and tinged with sweet and indulgent nostalgia. Certainly not as we were - repressed, not yet free - but for that classic allure that today, from the height of our independence, we can claim among the fundamentals of style. Costume, fashion, advertising, collective obsessions: Maria Grazia Preda takes us to a world that no longer exists, updating it with her humor, combining fun and criticism with great class. " Francesca Reboli, Vogue Italy
