A Delicate Edge

by Victoria Villasana

Victoria Villasana, born in Guadalajara, Mexico, is a textile artist, interested in culture and the human spirit. Villasana's work looks at how cultures connect to each other in a fragmented, post digital world. After studying design at ITESO University in Mexico, Villasana moved to London where she trained and worked as a florist and fashion stylist. She began making embroidery on top of images as a hobby. Later on she was inspired by the East London street art scene and began placing her embroidery images in the streets. She became well known in London's 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 as if they are as yet untold stories, giving a surreal aesthetic reflecting in the acceptance of transience and imperfection. Now residing in Mexico, Villasana continues to explore this medium through installations, editorials and commercial work collaborating with artists and brands around the world.
