| About






Lula Valletta resides in The Hague (NL).

Her work is connected in the do it yourself ethics and philosophical subject matter. She is an artist focussing mainly on analog collage and performance. She is part of the Berlin-based art collective Schlochtenheim. Her works are documented in self-published publications which she presents at several art book fairs and shops throughout Europe. Each of her publications is unique in its own way by the use of risograph printing techniques, for which she collaborates with printing press Stencilwerck.

Besides focussing on her own creativity she regularly writes articles about contemporary art and artists for art magazines. She is the initiator of Prophit Art Zine, a magazine that focusses on the contemporary analog collage scene worldwide. She collaborates with galleries, bands, and artists for design work, curating exhibitions and more. Also, she gives 'Cutting Edge' workshops about collage.
