Biography

Juli Manara is a Brazilian-born  London-based  visual artist mostly noticed by her surreal inspired works of large photomontages and conceptual photographs. The artist works with both digital and analogue techniques to build her final compositions. Her practices also include a wide range of different processes merging portraits, films and installations. Created figures and characters, mostly self-portraits, and botanics can be one of the main details through her playful images although she also explores contemporary social relationships and the environment we liveJuli's work has been part  in many exhibitions, including a special selection to display at the Tate Modern in London (during Dora Maar's opening exhibition) and her work is also part of the National Library of France permanent collection, in Paris.
