“I’m Eugenia. I grew up in Greece, but I’ve also lived in Germany and UK. These days I live in California. I’ve been a (terrible) nurse, a computer programmer, a (rather successful) technology journalist, and a filmmaker. In April 2012, after I had just finished an animated music video, I decided to try collaging after the knowledge I gathered from making the animation. I got hooked ever since!”, says Eugenia Loli.
After four years working as a tech journalist, she became very ill. While recuperating at home, Loli began experimenting with filmmaking and collages. With a love for futuristic sci-fi art, film and old magazines, Eugenia has collected around 750 vintage magazines.
Eugenia got her influences “… because I loved Julien Pacaud’s illustrations, but it was Kieron “Cur3es” Cropper who became my main influence. The guy’s a genius. Bryan “Glass Planet” Olson and David Delruelle are also influences of mine. From the older artists, I’d have to say, Magritte. However, I collage on many different styles: from “pop” to dada, and from modern illustrations to traditional surrealism.”
