Multi-textured art by Peruvian Ana Teresa Barboza

A beautiful mix of drawing, embroidery and photography is what makes the creations of Peruvian artist Ana Teresa Barboza so special. Her older creations were more delicate, focusing on creating a balance between wildlife and the human race. By comparison, her latest work is a bit more intense, heading towards a rougher direction by analyzing the human body itself and changing her embroidery technique as well as the colour range she uses.

Right now she involves more photography and has abandoned the fine threads she used before, replacing them with more classical stitches to create a three-dimensional look and feel.

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
