Alexandre Makiolke, also known as Bisner, is a Portuguese-Brazilian urban artist who currently resides in Lisbon.
In 2011, he started developing large format collages as part of his urban art project. His compositions are developed through different processes, such as print, screen print, stencil, spray, collage, use of labels and packaging, using basic shapes and lots of color.
His inspiration comes from the past. Bisner dives into his memories of a childhood lived in the 1980s and goes to the trunk box to collect material for his artistic work. Old family photos, cartoon memories, comic book characters and several other references that appear as layers in his collages.
Bisner has participated in notable projects and publications such as Plastik Comb Magazine Issue #1 (US 2020), COOLLAGE – A Closer Look Book (Netherlands 2022) and the Holliday Horizons advertising campaign for Coca Cola + Delta Airlines (US 2021). His works have also been on the covers of Brazilian magazines, such as Epoca, Globo Rural, Auto Esporte, among others.
