About The Artwork

Unpaid Sickness Series This series came to life thanks to three distinct but connected events happened in my personal life. The title of the series refers to the bitter sweet news received after I spent a week home from work because of a laryngitis. The second fact is connected to the medium, an unsold fashion magazine that I took from work and brought home. The topic of its contents were about the celebration of Mickey Mouse. The third fact brought an epiphany into my mind - watching a man begging for money in Soho dressed as Mickey Mouse. After a few months of owning an unwanted magazine, I knew that it was time to create something with it. I also wanted to represent all the feelings incapsulated into these life events: frustration, forgetfulness and oddness. Medium Pens on fashion magazine.

Naomi Vona (Desio 1982), is an Italian artist based in London. The artist defines herself as an "archival parasite, with no bad intentions". Her works combines different interests like photography, collages and illustration. Her research is focused on altering vintage and contemporary found images, creating a new interpretation of the original shots. Using pens, paper, washi tape and stickers she gives to every image a new life. Every work is basically composed of three elements: her life background, her inspirations and subconscious, that is also the glue that puts all together. Email: mariko.koda[at]gmail[dot]com
