Inspiring People: Mandarinas de Tela


I am loving these art dolls (called Mandarinas) made by Isabel Margarita, a painter and textile artist living in Chile. It’s always so nice to see dolls as works in progress (she shows many on her facebook page), and she describes her process in a way that makes it seem so simple when the result is anything but. Once again, it’s all about the little details at the end – the painting of the faces, the little sequins (Bowie!), the laced shoes. Isabel creates a lot of likeness dolls of celebrity artists, musicians, and characters from film, but just as many are from her imagination – it’s such a good mix and a beautiful aesthetic. Thank you Isabel, for letting me share these. Check out her blog, shop, and instagram (what a gorgeous feed!) too!
