Joana Vasconcelos, a show of textures, colors, and creativity!

I don’t remember when was my first contact with the works of the artist Joana Vasconcelos, but I know it was after moving to Portugal. The fact is that as soon as I saw, I was completely in love. So many textures, fabrics, threads, shine, shapes that turns into unique pieces. I always say that after I start a new print design, I don’t know the right time to stop. I put some elements, put and keep puting. And I think that’s why I identified so much with the beauty of these works, which give the impression that always fit an element there, another element here, but if you stop to add thing, is just already perfect.

In 2012, Joana Vasconcelos, became the first woman and youngest creator to exhibit some of his works at the Palace of Versailles in Paris.

The artist says she never was an honor student and found in arts freedom to explore and experiment.

Joana created arts using large pieces of ceramics of Bordalo Pinheiro giving them a “new skin”, lining them fully in crochet.

With so many details, fabric and color contrast, when I see these art pieces I get so inspired that I want to customize many things, like sew appliques on my pillows, or simply line a decorative piece. And you, looks up to do what? 🙂

Here are some valuable advice for anyone working with creativity:
