Cynthia Mavros (USA)
At the turn of the 21st century, Cynthia Mavros moved from the USA to Europe to work as a Software Engineer. As an artist working as an engineer, Cynthia approached writing software as a craft: blending art, design and engineering. Now as a full time independent creator, Cynthia merges traditional crafts and new digital techniques to design and create handcrafted characters inspired by everyday life. Each of Cynthia’s characters are a collage of textures and colours embellished with 3d printed features.
Believing there is beauty in nonsense, she creates characters that awaken emotions, while evoking a sense of whimsy.
