Fashion meets Art - Guerra de la Paz

Here, fashion meets art in form of the sculptures created with old clothing and fabrics by Guerra de la Paz.

As some of you may recall, the original name and then subtitle of my blog was "Fashion, Life & Curiousities". And while I may have changed name, I didn't change the underlying idea of wanting to share those things with you. The work of Guerra de la Paz, for me, touches on all three of these.





Guerra de la Paz is the together of the last names of two Cuban artists that live and work in Miami, Florida, US. They collaborate for projects since 1996.

In their own words their work "...is based on a combination of traditional disciplines and experimentation with dimension and the use of unconventional materials. It is inspired by an essential familiarity with the ready-made and the archaeological qualities that found objects possess. Encapsulating an energy that reveals underlying meanings and depicts the significance of mass-produced refuse on our society."
