Raf Cruz – A collagist, graphic designer, guitar player and father based in Lisbon, Portugal. In his own words he’s influenced by various different things he sees and hears – politics, news, emotions/gestures, jazz, colors, book covers and graphic arts, the Russian avantgardists, the dadaists, the renaissance and sustainability just to name a few.

He uses old print materials like magazines, books and even school manuals to crafts the collages and builds them either by hand or in digital form. Anyway, the results are illustratively absurd and vivid ensembles expressing an emotional and dramatic world, where the dark, ironic and even comic elements are living side by side in beautiful harmony.
