Mahani Del Borrello


Drawn to mundane, everyday scenes that routinely remain ignored by the passerby, Mahani seeks to reveal the alluring nature hidden within.

By manipulating colour—and often reconstructing scenes from familiar landscapes and urban objects— surreal, polychromatic versions of reality emerge.
