If Matisse and Léger were to have a brainchild the potently stunning and dynamic creations of Xoana Herrera would certainly seem its first cousin. Coming from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and using captivating shapes of color with controlled abandon, she designs puzzle piece like undulating flat worlds that capture the action of contemporary topics in an up-front and lovely way.
What is special and characteristic about her expressions are the ways she uses angles and volumes to suggest emotion and movement. The vector art as illustration trend has dominated large magazines such as The New Yorker and the Atlantic and for good cause, the freshness of viewing solid shapes and wandering lines have an immediacy that holds our gaze. The works of Xoana Herrera would look wonderful as street murals or hanging on the walls of modern homes.
