Victoria Villasana has a great series of classic photographs that have been painstakingly embroidered, to add colorful clothing, outlines, and bursts of color.
The contrast between the vintage black and white photos with the bright and colorful embroidery work beautifully together, creating pop art that we’d love to see hung on a wall. Marilyn Monroe, Nina Simone, Bob Dylan and Frida Kahlo are just a few in the series. We’re particularly impressed by the intricacy and care of the embroidery, we’d be afraid of ripping through the photographs and ruining the effect. Via Colossal:
