Stefano Bonazzi

Stefano Bonazzi is a self-taught web designer and digital artist from Ferrara, Italy.
His photo collage works are produced through a combination of digital photography, charcoal, and careful editing.

Bonazzi is by his own admission a cynic who feels alienated by optimism. Using the same tools that are often used in advertising, such as artificial colours and exaggerated forms, he creates darker and less inviting version of the world.

By creating moods of torment and anguish, he provide a counterpoint to the sweetened version of reality so prevalent in mainstream media and represent the version he is familiar with.

Akira Asakura

I like old city areas because of their mood. Okinawa, where I live now, is the island where you can see many things – kind of a forgotten Japan. One of the reasons is that Okinawa is the poorest prefecture in Japan. That means that many old things are still present: assorted derelict houses and bars, sign boards from the post-WWII era etc… About ten years have passed since I moved to this island, but I still feel like I am a traveller. I still feel strange seeing such things.
