About The Artist
Lola Dupré is a collage artist and illustrator currently working near Coimbra in Portugal.
From 2000 to November 2011 Lola worked in Glasgow Scotland, at the Chateau studios and then from the Chalet studios.
I find humour to be an important aspect of my work, especially when working with an image that is already very well known. The resulting manipulated image has an almost automatic sense of humour to it.
When I work on an image, the result is almost like a circus freak or a clown’s make-up: a distorted version of reality where the reality is still visible. This creates, in my opinion, either humour or horror. I am happy to express and elicit both, as this is a reflection of the reality of our lives and something we should talk about. (hi-fructos)
