Check Out Giselle Quinto’s Powerful Embroidery Portraits

Talented artist Giselle Quinto was born in Brasilia, Brazil, and currently lives in Amsterdam where she works on her beautiful embroidery artwork. Most of the time, she creates portraits of charming and powerful people who exude power.

On her website, Quinto says that “her work brings an anarchic view to classic embroidery, revisiting old traditions and transforming it in protest for equality, where all have the right to be and live whoever they are.” Each of the pieces she creates promotes equality in its most essential way: like everyone’s right to be what they want and live the life they need.
