About Me

Hi, I’m Irie! I have been working in Digital Marketing and Graphic Design for over 9 years, but always needed an extra creative outlet. Using Photoshop, I started making digital collage art which quickly grew into the brand ‘Irie Wata’. With my art I want to give people a brief escape from reality as well as a different perspective, and make them think or look twice. I love creating optical illusions by playing with gravity, perspective and proportions. Emphasizing the beauty of nature and diversity of life are things that mark my work. Most of my inspiration comes from the galaxy, nature, history and different cultures.
