Nice to meet you! My name is Bruna Souza. I'm a multidisciplinary designer and artist. Although I currently live and work in Amsterdam, I'm originally from São Paulo. I have a background of 7+ years working as a creative designer in marketing roles, and graduated with a Fine Arts bachelor's degree in London.
When it comes to my work as an artist and designer, I'm passionate about creating and sharing human experiences through visual language; using art, design, photography, video and interaction. Whether it's the dusty colors in a desert, the shimmer of an ocean wave or a beautiful song that's stuck in your head - I love sharing beautiful and impactful experiences with others.
I believe that everybody's brand identity should reflect who they really are. In our work together, we'll define the many parts that form the whole: vision, personality, visual style, voice. Once we piece everything together, you'll come away with a strong brand identity and the tools to communicate who you are.

Artist Statement

My work explores the relationship we have as humans to the world around us; how we interact with each other as a society, and how we relate to the contrasts of nature and technology. Coming from a Brazilian and Dutch background, a significant part of my work is influenced by multiculturalism, globalization, and hybrid cultures. I fuse local and global influences to create something from my own unique perspective. Within this subject matter, I explore ideas of infinity, repetition, memory, psychedelia, and the sublime in nature.
Through mixed media, each project I undertake explores a different material or method: video, photography, sculpture, illustration, or multi-media installation. The variety I experiment with also embodies the multiplicity of the world; the abundance of choice and possibility that is sometimes stimulating, and at other times overwhelming.
