Ýrúrarí is an Icelandic artist who uses textiles to design face masks full of fantasy and art. With her style, she redefines the simple aesthetic of face masks with a more fun game of colors and dimensions.

Furthermore, to learn more about the artist’s project, you have to know more about her overall work which is based on textiles, mainly sweaters that she makes with a recycling philosophy.

This is because she mainly wears secondhand sweaters to give them a new life. Hence, she produces curious, quirky, and very colorful pieces that you can check out on her Instagram account.

Moreover, with this same creation method and philosophy focused on the sustainability of fashion, Ýrúrarí makes her masks by experimenting with the main shape of this accessory which has become so essential nowadays.

Each piece features several parts that belonged to different sweaters, resulting in a collage of fabrics, as well as a collection of uniform sewing styles that culminate in these unique accessories.

Hence, some have psychedelic shapes and others are somewhat unreal or disproportionate. However, they all share a theme of fantasy and textile design that comes out of the ordinary.

The face masks and tailored sweaters can be found for sale on her official website. Thus, this allows her to get more secondhand clothes to make them useful again.
