Ana Strumpf a Brazilian designer based in New York has been re visiting magazine covers with sharpie pens and creating dynamic, colourful changes and reinterpretation of classic magazine covers, the disposable icons of consumerism, and making them an art form of their own.
" The idea grew out of a principle that permeates all my work for a long time – to recreate, revisit, recompose – only now in the form of manual interventions on fashion magazine covers. In a moment in which the printed press goes through such a strong crisis, I find this a playful way to re-signify these publications that, usually, would end up discarded." Ana Strumpf
