About the print Hollys piece for Damn Fine Print aims to embed a confrontational slogan about refusing existing power systems in our society into what could be seen as a traditionally feminine aesthetic - hence flowers, folds and fuck the patriarchy.
Pereira’s practice explores the amalgamation of text and image through hand drawn lettering and illustrated type.The process involves treating letters as if they were imagery, and weaving other motifs around them, while also playing with typography and all the bells and whistles that come with typographical design.
