My world is not like that of others, I want more, I demand more, there is in me a thirst for infinity, a constant anguish that even I do not understand myself, for I am far from being a pessimist; I am rather an exalted soul, with an intense and violent soul, tormented, a soul that does not feel well where it is, that misses it … I do not know what!

Project MARIAS PAPERDOLLS was born in 2011 of the passion, creativity, dream and ambition of four artists from Portugal “MARIAS” ARE DOLLS WITH SOUL AND IDENTITY “There are dolls and there are MARIES”. This is the maxim of the project MARIAS PAPERDOLLS, a contemporary concept of environmental approach, which gives birth to paper dolls and has the signature of the artists Cláudia Nair Oliveira and Júlio Oliveira
The creation of the MARIAS PAPERDOLLS had in its genesis four mentors who, in 2011, saw in recycling the paper of newspapers and magazines a way of materializing and expressing their artistic vein. MARIAS PAPERDOLLS was born, the fruit of passion, creativity, dream and ambition to give life to a raw material that becomes a unique doll, with its own language, full of soul and identity.
