Marina Dempster is a multi-talented artist born in Mexico, to British and French parents. She is based in Toronto, Canada. I am in love with these shoe/sculptures created by her. Marina’s primary technique here is a contemporary translation of the pre-Columbian Huichol art of ‘transformational yarn painting’. The process consists on preparing a form with a new skin of bees’ wax and pine-resin, which is then meticulously embedded with yarns or beads with the pressure of the fingertips and other improvised tools. Wow! But this is not the only thing that Marina Dempster does. She is also a professional photographer. I invite you to visit her website to see more of her work.
