Creating TEXTILE PRINTS & SCULPTURES as a surreal interpretation of nature's FLORA & FAUNA. The art forms are made with cloth, paint, dyes, quilting, weaving and embroidery. Vibrant motifs come to life on the body through FASHION DESIGNS & FABRIC PRODUCTION with digital technology & sewing construction.
My artist process includes surface design, painting, sculpting and sewing construction. Creating Avant-Garde Apparel, Textile Design & Sculptures with surreal abstracted earth imagery. Developing contemporary collections that reflects a confluence of creating characters focusing on cloth storytelling with animal conservation, ethnobotany and art history folklore of environmental humanities while exploring the fantasy of futurism.
Angelina Martin is the artist behind the brand ANYMYSTIK
She has a Master of Fine Art in Textile Art & Costume Design, a Master of Humanities in Visual Art & Media and a Bachelor of Science in Design. Her research & creative expressionism incorporates functionalist ways cloth is used as an art object by ancient civilizations for utilitarian agricultural purposes, festival rituals, performance art & costume. She creates a confluence of surreal stories with surface design & self symbolism in the form of fashion, costume, printmaking, quilts and assemblage sculptures. Her production process is an interdisciplinary approach of art history, folklore & creation myths as textile narratives across time & space
Inspired by ancient agricultural rituals, sacred symbolism of surface design on the cloth and environmental sustainability. Creating tributes of Textile Quilts, Wearable Art & Sculpture as a social responsibility of women to cultivate and captivate the divine unity of nature's resources by shapeshifting humanity with costume as an Apotheosis to Mother Earth. The social and historical environmental connections I make to the audience is with storytelling by developing a character as a living object. Incorporating fairytale narratives that tell stories about particular civilization's with symbolic community roles of ancient textiles & cloth constructions. Making cross cultural references provides structuralist information of how objects of wearable art were physically made, type of tools & materials addressing animal conservation & plant preservation.
