El Kartel is proud to present Varvara Kronberg/ Zhemchuzhnikova, Russian-born fashion and textile designer - artist based in Vancouver, Canada. She holds Master’s degree in Fashion Design and her work usually focuses on sustainable approach in art and design.
For her project PAINTING WASTE she paints with a sewing machine bringing what was considered waste back to live. She collaborats with local and international brands and artists to upcycle textile waste into paintings and ask some questions:
"Is it really a waste what we consider to be a waste? What if we cover a discarded silk in gold is it still a waste? Is it just our perception that puts labels on things to be waste or something of value for us."
