I start to use strip of papers professionaly in my work in 2005, it was on a circle made of strip of papers, I learn to do that when I was at school younger. The concept comes from an artistic movment from the years 1950 - 1960. In 2008, after some changes in my life, I experienced very difficult moment.
To survive as I cannot pay for my colors, I have start to use free advertisement magazines and newspapers to do artwork with...and play with words as on the original concept from the years 50 - 60 ,and it works. Each one is made of thousands of pieces of those magazines.
It has become an habit to use them to remember hard time.
As this magazines always tells stories and event in the cities from where I take them, they are all memories of a moment in a city life, if you take the time to read a little of them of course.
