My name is Bruna Souza. I'm a multidisciplinary designer and artist. I'm originally from Brazil and I currently live and work in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I have background of 7+ years working as a creative designer in marketing roles.
I have a passion for capturing and sharing unforgettable moments. Whether it's the dusty colors in a desert, the shimmering details in an ocean wave, the way something can make you feel, a beautiful sound you can't forget. I love creating and sharing human experiences in a visual way; through art, design, photography, video, and interaction.
I believe that every business's brand identity should reflect who they really are. Many parts should come together to form this whole: vision, personality, visual style, voice. When you piece everything together, you create a strong brand identity and clearly communicate who you are. I help people tell the story they want to tell through visual language.

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.
