FOCUS ON: Sofia Salazar
“Being the owner of my time and able to work only with what I consider worth it. That’s success, that’s what I want in my life.” – Sofia Salazar
This week we stumbled across textile designer and illustrator Sofia Salazar on an Instagram scroll.. and we were stopped in our tracks. Her works of large scale embroidered canvas' and hand embroidered clothing are a modern day response to sex and gender issues.
Sofia describes her own work as a form of a journal, documenting thoughts she has had and people she has met. We love the mythical translation and tactile aesthetic. Sofia is unmistakably influenced by the surrealist artists and collage artist greats like Picasso, Cocteau, Matisse, Chillida and Schiele.
Her made to order, hand embroidered clothing and accessories are available here:
Keep up the excellent work Sofia, we can't wait to see what you do next!
