ana teresa barboza embroidery

Peruvian artist Ana Teresa Barboza is a little bit of an embroidery expert, but if you're after pretty florals and the kind of art that would be right at home on your grandma's wall, we're not-so-sorry to say, you've come to the wrong place.

Featuring lots of wild animals, body modifications and even an internal organ or two, Ana's stitching is one part delicate, one part gruesome and a whole lot badass, from the first to the final stitch. We're massively in awe of the level of detail in her eerie work – just check out that brocade in the final piece.

Flick through her full portfolio here.
