The collection of NFT “Lil Granny” made by Buddy
Born and raised in Brescia, Italy, Paola Colombo (known as Pollaz) is a “hands-on” artist and designer who has always been linked to the world of manual skills. She loves fabrics, needles and threads, and for this reason everything her mind imagines then translates into creations of all kinds: she experiments with different techniques, loves using fabric and drawing on it with a sewing machine, cutting paper and put pieces together or draw digitally and then think about how to render the design she creates in three dimensions.
His “Pollaz” brand, officially created in 2008, now signs accessories, furniture accessories and other fabric objects from his illustrations, as well as paper cut-outs and patterns for furniture and orders for brands. and businesses.
The secret of its success? Always original, attentive to detail but above all in step with the times. His designs are very varied, ranging in many different products and over time they have changed and evolved. You could say that somehow Pollaz has the ability to transpose all his imagination made of imaginary friends and imaginary worlds into illustrations and works.
“I have always enjoyed filling sheets and notebooks with drawings and scribbles in search of the best way to bring my creations to life. The house is a fundamental element of my work, from the drawings that represent it until to products intended to live in. I have an unlimited passion for miniatures, the very small things, the smallest details but at the same time I am fascinated by simplification, which is why I like to vary a lot in my work. !
