Giselle Quinto’s Embroideries

WORDS Michaela Stehr IMAGES

Amsterdam-based textile and embroidery artist Giselle Quinto uses the strength of women as the inspiration for her striking art pieces.

Giselle uses embroidery to illustrate a confident cast of female characters. In her online bio, she states 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.” Her subjects are adorned with tattoos and piercings and exude a contemporary mood.
