The Dutch artist Handiedan is living and working in Amsterdam. Originally trained as a graduated photographic designer at the Academy for fine Arts and design in Breda, The Netherlands, Handiedan developed her working skills into graphic design and illustration throughout the years. Since 2008 Handiedan works as a full time self taught collage artist. Her artwork has been shown throughout the world including Phone Booth Gallery, Spoke Art, Unit 44, Black Book Gallery and has been featured in several magazines and blogs including HiFructose, Juxtapoz, IdN and Victionary. Handiedan's collages involve a complex cut and paste mixture of classic pin-up images. Intricate and meticulously crafted, the collages represent the gradual accumulation of layers. Over a backdrop of baroque and Victorian Neo-Classicism designs culled from international currencies and stamps, antique sheet music ornaments, playing cards, sigar bands, Asian papers and personal items, the artist fuses classic pin-up girl body parts, with the scissors and a steady hand to create her own version of beauty.
