After the creation of Gentlemen and Gentlewomen, I thought that I needed to complete this series with a bunch of kids. These are all collages on small round wood panels.
I used acrylic and gel pens over some vintage portraits mounted on the wood boards. As all the adults of the series, even these little fellas are “aliens from the future landed on Earth to teach the good manners to the human species”.
My #morerainbows! series, which started during the pandemic, was a daily search for connection, hope, wonder and joy in which I embroidered silk rainbows onto found, vintage photographs. I felt the need for all of us to be able to see the rainbows in ourselves, in each other and in our world.
I have been involved in this exciting collaboration with the brand Stanley, where I had to “dress up” one of their products with a collage.
I never did anything like that before, so it was quite a challenge for me. The collab involved filming a commercial as well, so I was not sure if I could make it at first. I can say that despite the fears,
I am very happy that I tried something new, and also pleased with the final result. You can see what I have made on the video above, I hope you enjoy it!

The Icelandic textile artist Ýr Jóhannsdóttir (better known as Ýrúrarí), gives a second chance and life to “forgotten sweaters” in the most creative way.
She creates colourful wearable art, soft sculptures with a story to tell. Her research is also a statement against consumption and the will to educate through art in reusing and recycling old stuff.
This is how she describes her creative research:
Her work is mostly knitted, where fragments of humor, body movements and the everyday meets in wool based, often wearable, objects. For the past years the importance of sustainability has had an impact to Ýrúrarí’s work.
As the previous one, you can see the presentation preview on the video above and if you like it, you can download the complete version clicking here (you will receive a link by email after you make your order).
