Faith Ringgold

Iconic multimedia artist Faith Ringgold has said that she switched from painting as a medium to fabric to get away from the association of painting with Western/European traditions. Similarly, the use of quilt allowed her advocation of the feminist movement as she could simply roll up her quilts to take to the gallery, therefore negating the need of any assistance from her husband.

Ana Torma

We love Canadian-Hungarian textile artist Anna Torma’s work because it expands the parameters of what a story quilt could be.
