Stefano Bonazzi is a self-taught web designer and digital artist from Ferrara, Italy.
His photo collage works are produced through a combination of digital photography, charcoal, and careful editing.
Bonazzi is by his own admission a cynic who feels alienated by optimism. Using the same tools that are often used in advertising, such as artificial colors and exaggerated forms, he creates darker and less inviting version of the world.
By creating moods of torment and anguish, he provide a counterpoint to the sweetened version of reality so prevalent in mainstream media and represent the version he is familiar with.
