Nice to meet you! My name is Bruna Souza. I'm a multidisciplinary designer and artist. Although I currently live and work in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, I'm originally from São Paulo, Brazil. I have a background of 8+ years working as a creative designer, and I graduated with a Fine Arts Bachelor's Degree from University of the Arts 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 expressing the dusty colors from a desert, the shimmer of an ocean wave or a song that's stuck in your head - I love sharing beautiful and impactful human 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.
If you'd like to chat about a possible art project or collaboration, just reach out and let's plan a coffee.

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.
