Instagram is our go-to for many things: food porn, OOTDs and tattoos. It’s also our favorite place to discover emerging artists. Our latest #InstaCrush? Lourdes Villagómez (aka @lourdes_villagomez), a bright and bold Mexico City-based artist who has captured the attention of our geometric-obsessed hearts.

Villagómez (who has a background in graphic design) quit her day job so she could focus full-time on her passion for painting. “I love color, and the fact that it is so Mexican. One of my main topics is Mexican culture and traditions. In my country, that goes hand in hand with color,” Villagómez told Instagram.
