Mariana Rio I




Oh so so much to share  . . . 
This is Mariana Rio a Portuguese illustrator who's work stood out today with its bold colours, its stencilled / graffiti style on a mosaic of geometric shapes. 

"This is a book about different bodies.It is an unfinished puzzle for readers to think about… What is perfection? What are beautiful bodies? Does geometry have anything to do with these matters?" Mariana Rio

  3. wow! thanks for finding this out. i knew they looked like prints but needed to know. she must have run through the press many times or hand stamped some after running through a printing press
