Welcome to my blog!
My name is Monica Carvalho and I love creating surreal photos that will make you look twice.
I was born and raised in Lausanne (Switzerland) by Portuguese parents. I moved to England in 2012 for my University studies. After completing my BA in History of Art with Museum Studies in Leeds, I moved down to London where I did a MA degree in Design for Communication. London was the first city I have exhibited my surreal photomontages, at the Sprout Arts Gallery.
I have now been living in Berlin since 2016 and I hope to exhibit my artworks in this vibrant and arty city too.
Concerning my photomanipulations, it is important that people know that I own all the photographs used. I do never use a third party image. The models in my photos are mostly me, but also friends and family. I use a lot of photographs I take on holidays and trips 🙂
Prints of my artworks (for T-Shirts, Iphone and laptop cases, mugs, stickers, posters, bags, key holders, scarves and much more) can be purchased on the four websites below.
