Mecedes Vicente is an artist based in Galicia, Spain, specializing in craft art. A regular participant in exhibitions around the world, she is currently working with wood and textile projects, including sculptures made of canvas strips. Initially, her art was pictorial, but it evolved into sculpture, with canvas as her primary medium. “When I started using this technique," she says, "I realized that people were amazed by such a manual process. Then I started to think that what I was doing was within the realms of craftsmanship, art and design.” She loves the elastic, organic, flexible and translucent properties of the fabric with which she works.
