Textile artist Victoria Villasana breathes new life into black and white photos by sewing vividly-colored yarns and threads onto them. Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, and legal tender all get the treatment.
After studying design at ITESO University in Mexico, she spent over a decade in London where she became well known in the street art community for her rebellious femininity and acute cross-cultural imagery. The dynamism in her work derives from the way the yarn is left uncut, far below the frame, giving a surreal aesthetic reflecting in the acceptance of transience and imperfection. Now residing in Mexico, her work is shown in exhibitions and public installations around the world.
