Collage Artwork on canvas, 2018. Size : 70 x 50 x 4.5 cm ⁣

Peacefulness only comes from within. We can stay lost forever in such an imaginary paradise… or create our own. ⁣

+++ Every single piece of this collage comes from magazines I gathered in South-East Asia two years ago, when I backpacked for 40 days alone through Vietnam and Indonesia.
Such a collage requires approximatively 25 hours of work. +++
