Eugenia Loli is a modern vintage collage artist from the Bay Area.
Austere: Why do you make art?
EL: It’s my legacy. I won’t be having any children, so that’s what I’ll leave behind.
A: What do you think of your work?
EL: It could be better. I have 800 collages so far [and] I like maybe 40 of them.
A: What’s your favorite piece or series you’ve ever done (if any)?
EL: Three Minutes to Nirvana is my deepest work so far. [Read more about the series here].
A: Who/what are you inspired by?
EL: Surrealism masters of old, and from the new ones, Cur3es and David Delruelle.
“A Couple of Sailors“
A: What (if anything) do you want your art to accomplish?
EL: Make people think a bit.
A: What would you choose for your last meal?
EL: A whole lamb roasted on the spit, on top of fire (traditional Easter meal in Greece), filled with lots of mint. The ribs are to die for. And I probably would, since that would be my last meal.
A: Is there anything else you’d like to add?
EL: I need to sleep more…
“Heart on the Rocks“
