“Florentina Print” is the alias of 24 year old designer Florentina Fischer Pereyra from Montevideo, Uruguay, who recently finished her studies as an architect. Florentina creates intricate hand-drawn florals and paisleys and trend-right photographic prints, all infused with a healthy dose of color.
“Firstly, I thought I wanted to become a fashion designer and afterward I got involved with architecture; but when I discovered the pattern and surface design world I realized that this was my thing. However, I don’t regret studying what I did, it really helps me to open my mind and discover infinite inspirations.
So I started to develop my career as an artist three years ago creating my artistic name: “Florentina Print”. I have not got the chance to work professionally as a pattern designer yet, but with any luck I will do this for a living someday!
Drawing has been my passion since I can remember, I really enjoy creating colourful art.
My best inspiration is focused on nature, I just love tropical flowers and birds, specially parrots and flamingos… that’s why I also look up to the Brazilian look, mostly Rio de Janeiro’s image because of its tropical and vivacious mood and culture. I really love vibrant and bright colours, fuchsia and turquoise are my favorite, they truly look so amazing in everything I can imagine.”
