About the tutor

Yianni (he/him) is a Trend Forecaster by day and collage artist by night.

Yianni started his career as a fashion designer with his own label and even showed at Australian Fashion Week.

During the pandemic he discovered a love of collage and how it could help him clear his mind. In doing so he ended up showing at the Postcard Show (Linden Gallery), the Queer My Head show (Dax Centre as part of Midsumma, which had a huge impact on him), and more recently the Men on Men show (The Laird) and Midsumma show “Thats so Gay” in Kyneton this year. Now Yianni is starting to share his love of collage with others to help them realise the possibilities.
