Lucas Simões: memories and matchsticks.

Brazilian artist Lucas Simões lives in São Paulo where he melts celluloid prints, cuts up books and makes portraits of his friends from layers and layers of photographs and the aid of an iPod.

Absence

Nostalgia

Adios

Who plays with fire.

I love these very simple but evocative images, go burn some holiday snaps.

Here are a few wonderful words by the artist…

“You tripped us disaster-prone stars

But for the me you were the star between the stars”

“The intimate infinity is
Mine and yours
Has no beginning nor end
But ends in you”

Have a look at his website, he makes all sorts.
