Olinda Silvano

Lima, Peru

Shipibo-konibo artist Olinda Silvano uses geometric Shipibo weaving designs, "kené," to create large works of public art. For the Bach Project, she created a design using traditional and contemporary geometric patterns to capture nature’s mystical power and draw a map to the future. Painted by Shipibo-konibo women, the mural will become a living landmark honoring the power of Amazonian resources and knowledge.
