Naomi Vona

Naomi Vona

Naomi Vona is a freelance artist who lives in Dublin. She uses vintage found photos and collages over them, which gives this sense of surrealism to it.

Naomi transforms the original photos and gives them a new narrative- something far more interesting, wonderful and unique. The identities of the subjects in the photos are simply not erased but presented in an almost other worldly manner and given them a new lease of life. 

I really like Naomi's approach to image making; the actual process of collage is a narrative in itself. I like how parts of the drawings and patterns grow out to frame the subjects in the photos. I can't wait to see what Naomi does in the future.

You can find more of Naomi's work over at Society6, Flickr, Saatchi Online and for the latest news and updates check out her blog Purple Woods.
