Isabel Reyes Santos

Location: Philippines

Isabel Reyes Santos takes the offcuts of culture and mines them for gold. The artist specialises in repurposing, reconfiguring and recombining, to dramatic and sometimes disjunctive effect, images and icons from western popular culture, including comics, adverts and old Hollywood. In 2021, she beat more than 10,000 other entries to win the Uniqlo UT Grand Prix T-shirt design competition, a partnership with New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
