Colorful Embroidery Breathes New Life into Portraits of Cultural Icons



Mexico-based textile artist Victoria Villasana applies colorful embroidery designs to vintage black and white photographs of cultural icons. Inspired by world culture and the human spirit.

Villasana’s chosen imagery depicts who she calls “true visionaries,” meaning “people who realize their inner power to change things.”

Throughout her works, rainbow colored stitches—in geometric and polka dot patterns—are used to highlight the subject’s clothing, jewelry, and eyes. Villasana’s aim is to “keep the message of these visionaries in our minds and hearts.”

Villasana often works beyond the confines of her studio. She takes to the streets where she creates yarn bombings, and pastes posters and stickers which incorporate textile details.
