Tanya Aguiñiga

I received a lovely e-mail from Lisa Michelle of USA (United States Artists) alerting me to a series of videos featuring various artists and their work.

One in particular caught my eye - Tanya Aguiniga, a young woman who grew up in Tijuana, Mexico and is now living in Southern California.

Her work is amazing, people!  Cast-offs and found objects reworked, often incorporating textiles in gorgeous colours.  Just look at those chairs!

Watch the video here (be sure to check out the rest of the videos while you're there....)

And be sure to check out her website.

Thanks for the info, Lisa!
