Joanna Winograd’s Illustrated World

Via Artconnect

Inspired by religious art from the Middle Ages and traditional Latin-American art, as well as her own surroundings, artist Joanna Winograd’s illustrated world is filled with badass women. They’re witches and goddesses graphically painted in black and white, sometimes with a dash of colour – always with a lot of attitude.

It’s a Friday afternoon when we meet in Joanna’s shared studio in Wedding. She was raised in Argentina and Colombia and moved to France at the age of 18, where she lived until moving to Berlin three years ago. She likes to use different mediums in her work, and often changes between drawing in her sketchbook, sewing, screen printing and painting on odd materials she found. “I don’t like having a routine, so I decide what to do everyday depending on how I feel or what I have to do” she says.
