Sewing Icons. | Victoria Villasana.

In Crumbs, The Menu, Visual Arts by Bim StarLeave a Comment

This embroidery infused work by Mexican artist Victoria Villasana is amazing. You may recognize her name because Victoria was a prolific street artist in London for a decade. Known for “her rebellious femininity and cross-cultural imagery”, Villasana mixes her love for yarn with images of visionaries, positive messages, colours, and patterns to create these dope pieces of art featuring iconic figures like Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, and Jimi Hendrix. Check out some of Victoria’s work below.
