Eva Iszoro’s Innovative Fusion of Digital Art and Fashion

 

Eva Iszoro, PhD, is a multifaceted visual artist (digital artist, fashion artist, NFT artist, virtual artist), fashion designer, architect, academic, filmmaker, and pioneering researcher in the field of experimental pattern cutting and virtual reality.

She is the author of ‘ACCIDENTAL CUTTING,’ a groundbreaking experimental pattern cutting method focused on creating original and unique volumes that have not existed until now. This is achieved through abstract, random, and accidental cuts and flat patterns. The method is described in her PhD thesis, and was honored with the Extraordinary Doctoral Thesis Prize from the Polytechnic University in Madrid.
