Orquidia Violeta is a Salvadoran-American textile artist. Using vivid colors and contrasting textures, she sews exuberant artwork with a joyful visual style and clever material design. Orquidia uses salvaged materials and sustainable practices, transports her body and work by bicycle, and sews on reclaimed machines. The imperfect beauty and infinite diversity of our world inspires Orquidia to create real artwork that reflects real people.
