Leocadia Jurado’s nickname could be “fairy fingers”. Educated in Plastic arts, former teacher of drawing and ceramic for children in Sevilla, this Spanish artist lives in Brussels since 17 years, where the passion for fashion led her to work as manager and visual merchandiser in various boutiques, notably Chine Collection.
Given her eagerness for creation, she decides at the same time to go in for painting using a mixed technique based on the art of collage. Her talent will not remain unnoticed and she is asked to decorate with collage and graffiti works a clothing boutique in Sitges, Spain.
After having designed several hats for a theater show “The wizard of Oz”, played in her native city, Leocadia starts to create a very unique and stylish collection of handbags made with crochet-work. Totally handmade, combination of pure geometric shapes and flaming colours, these handbags have a great success in Sitges.
Eager for new challenges, Leocadia chooses to apply this home-made technique to the upholstery of furniture. She makes her first try on a seventies armchair and recovers it using a plenty of wool balls of different colours.
The result is a complete rebirth. Her remarkable skill of creating a “patchwork”, where every color supports and emphasizes the others, gives to this object a fresh contemporary touch.
Her work really deserve to be noticed so if you want to help her to distribute her art, you may contact her at +32 473 80 28 13.
