Lettering & Visual Gardening: facciamo germogliare i caratteri!

Is it possible to reflect thanks to something that is not a mirror?
Collage, stencil and lettering to show that the answer is positive.
A collection of philosophical quotes will guide us to the creation of a suggestive and profound artwork, with the purpose of making reflection a spontaneous act that could burst when you least expect it.

Seeding: the art of collage through tautology and the metaphor
Freehand lettering and stencil.

Tools: paper, magazines, scissors, glue, markers, brushes, alphabetical stencils, definitive artwork base

Harvest: Concept choice, collage composition, application of typography
