Velsimo is an international street artist and photographer who started being publicly artsy in 2018 (and non-publicly artsy ever since she can remember). She creates tiny scenes in unexpected places and photographs them. Her subjects are on a scale of 1:87 (that’s teeny-tiny!). To get a sense of that scale, imagine you got your hands on Szalinski’s Shrinking Machine (from the movie Honey, I Shrunk the Kids) and you shrunk a six-foot-tall human down to two centimeters tall. That tiny person could comfortably sit on the edge of your fingernail.
Velsimo has a few main goals she’s focused on:
- Make people laugh.
- Make people think.
- Make people act.
She hopes her work can provoke thought, inspire action, and ultimately affect positive change in the world.
ROOTS and CURRENT LOCATION:
