Coral Garden: a stunning installation of textile coral reefs by Vanessa Barragão

Lisbon-based artist Vanessa Barragão turns common rugs and yarns into fabulous coral reef-shaped tapestries. Barragão is focused on craft techniques and wasted yarns from the industry. Her creations are heavily influenced by ocean stuff due to her childhood. She was born and grew up in Albufeira, a seaside town in the south of Portugal.

“Vanessa Barragão’s work is characterized by her captivating environments of coral reefs, cleverly combining craft and recycled materials into unique and luxurious sculptural carpets and tapestries for floors and walls.” – Vanessa Barragão.
