Amanda Durepos is a collage artist based out of Montreal, Canada. She graduated with a BFA from Concordia University in 2012 and founded Montreal-based collage collective CTRL+V in 2015.
She works primarily in the medium of collage but also explores ideas using multimedia art and electronics. She is inspired by predictive text, AI dystopias, spam and cyberclutter, retrofuturism, the uncanny, the grotesque, and how technology affects our relationships and our bodies.
