NOW SHIPPING WORLDWIDE! SMALL ARTWORK AS A GIFT WITH YOUR FIRST ORDER!

VELKOMIN - WELCOME

Behind my store is only me, Dagrun Iris a graphic designer from Iceland. It's been years since I choose this artistic path that I find myself on today. I have always been working on collages since teenager, what I like the most about collage as an art form is how you can twist and bend the reality into something totally different.

In the beginning my artworks are always original handmade mixed media artworks. I cut and paste, add pen and pencil drawings, magazine and book pages, gouache, fabric and just everything that fits to create the final outcome. Some of them end up as prints and are taken to a digital format and altered on a little bit.

In this shop I am selling prints of my original collage artworks, original collage artworks and my Power of Plant series.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I get inspired by with the woman, her mind and body and the concept for most of my work is the endless battle that often happens between the two. Fashion and magazines are an endless source of ideas in my artistic creation, where the reality and the glossy images of the magazines overlap. Through the works, I review and look at fashion and glossy magazines with critical eyes ".

Graduated as a graphic designer from Akureyri School of Visual Art in Iceland 2011.

Now located in Reykjavik, Iceland working from my home.

 

Að baki vefverslunarinnar DIRIS stendur grafíski hönnuðurinn Dagrún Íris en hún vinnur klippimyndir og hefur náð að skapa sinn sérstaka stíl sem verk hennar þekkjast gjarnan á.

Í upphafi eru verkin alltaf handunninn klippimyndaverk, unnin með blandaðri tækni þar sem hún klippir og límir enn efniviðnum eru engin takmörk sett. Tímarit og síður bóka, blýantur, penni,  gouach og akríl,  stundum textílefni og flest það sem til fellur við gerð verkanna.  Þau verk sem verða eftirprent eru síðan færð yfir í tölvutækt form og eru þar stílfærð í sína loka mynd.

Í gegnum klippimyndirnar afbakast normið og tilveran tekur á sig hinar ýmsu kynjamyndir.  


"Ég er alltaf að vinna með konur og er innblástur flestra minna verka sú stórkostlega tenging og jafnframt togstreita sem getur skapast á milli huga og líkama. Tíska og tímarit eru endalaus uppspretta hugmynda í minni listsköpun, þar sem rauveruleikinn og glansmyndir blaðanna skarast á. Í gegnum verkin rýni ég í og lít tískutímarit gagnrýnum augum".


Dagrún Íris hefur haldið sýningar hér heima og erlendis og er nú staðsett í Reykjavík þar sem hún vinnur heiman frá sér.


Hafir þú einhverjar spurningar eða ábendingar þá tek ég slíku mjög vel. Ef þú ert með sérstakar óskir varðandi verkin eins og t.d. stærðir eða annað þá endilega sendu mér línu á posterdiris@diris.is

Ég hlakka til að heyra frá þér!
