Florencia Montefalcone (b.1991, Buenos Aires) is a multidisciplinary artist who finds inspiration in performance, photography, and textiles. Her work delves into the intricate world of women's image creation, shedding light on its profound impact on self-appreciation and societal perceptions. By hand-painting silk and weaving garments, Montefalcone infuses each piece with intention, empowering individuals with the transformative experience of wearing art that embodies empowerment, authenticity, and a reimagined narrative.
