Victoria Villasana

Victoria Villasana was born in Guidalajara, Mexico, resided in London and is currently living in Mexico.  She studied design at ITESO University in Mexico then moved to London to work and train as a florist and fashion stylist.  Embroidered black and white photos started as a hobby in 2014.  She was inspired by East London street art, began placing the embroidered images in the street and eventually became well-known.  In an interview on The Book of Man she says this about what moves her to create:  

“Everything moves me – since I was kid I always felt a really strong urge to create. I felt my best when I was making things and I think we all do, I think humans we are naturally makers and creators that’s why we can connect through art easily. I’ve have always been concerned with social issues and art became a good medium for me to express them.”

More of her work can be viewed on her website and Instagram.
