Ana-Maria Pasescu-Stewart and Amy Angold are a newly collaborative duo creating multidisciplinary work spanning graphic design through to prop production. Despite only recently becoming a creative partnership, their work is incredibly polished. In the past couple of months they’ve created both stunning props for Sbtrkt’s latest video and a window installation at Soboye concept store, so we thought it was about time to find out more.
Hi guys, lovely work, tell us a bit about yourselves…
We’ve known one another for many years and finally bit the bullet and got ourselves a studio, which we have already managed to fill with an array of materials and various other objects. We share a similar obsessive nature to using materials in ways only magpies understand!
Your masks look magnificent, how did you go about making them?
We most recently completed a window display for Soboye Concept Store called BOO which is currently on display until the end of October. Taking inspiration from some of the elements in store we created a series of African inspired masks. Each mask being crafted entirely from paper allowed us to work with leaves en masse, playing with colour, scale and repetition to create the overall effect.
What’s next for the two of you?
