Pattern artist Manuela Escobar is a new and very talented artist that is dressing with beautiful and colourful patterns Miami walls and museums.

She uses patterns in her art. The medium or technique is not important; as long as someone employs a combination of elements or shapes repeated in a recurring and regular arrangement,she can be described as a pattern artist. Of course, to describe someone like that means that the creator uses patterns in a vast number of their works. There are so many such famous Modern and Contemporary artists, but only those who create a large number of artworks characterized by these designs composed of repeated motifs can be labeled as pattern artists.


Patterns are usually associated with design, and indeed here is where they play a very important role. When it comes to art, patterns have been used from ancient times. They exist in nature – the repeating units of shape or form can be identified in the world that surrounds us. In art history, patterns have been used from Ancient Greece to the contemporary era. In the 20th century art, there were movements and groups who embraced this technique, such as Art Nouveau, simply because they wanted to incorporate natural settings into the world of art and architecture (including natural geometry).


There are movements whose “philosophy” and approach is a priori against the use of patterns. For example, minimalist art or conceptual art by definition do not embrace repetition as a method. Still, even within these movements, it’s possible to identify pattern artists, and their names will appear on this list. Simply, patterns have a rich history in art in general, and they cannot be ignored. From Ancient Times and Islamic Art and Architecture, patterns always have had an important role as a form of decoration, repetition, and rhythm. That is why many contemporary artists use this style in their practice.




The book Principles of Pattern Design is both educative and illustrative. Written by Richard M. Proctor, the book contains 280 illustrations depicting historical and contemporary examples of pattern, many adapted from such diverse sources as an ancient Peruvian stone amulet, 12th-century mosaics, 13th-century damask, Japanese stencil designs, and much more. The book is also illustrated manual of the principles of pattern formation and their application to design and decoration. Decorative samples appear in macramé and embroidery, mosaics, painting, collage, sculpture, and on wrapping paper, and a concluding chapter explores the visual range of one particular motif — the Romanesque arch form. It can be useful for teachers, students, designers, and craftspeople, but also for art lovers as well.

Congratulations Manuela!!
