Shishi San (b. 1993) is a multidisciplinary textile artist based in Brussels known for blurring the lines between Design and Fine Arts with her fluffy vases.
Always looking for something new to learn, she started teaching herself the art of tufting in 2019. Whilst she still works with other textile methods, tufting has since become her primary artistic practice. In the last four years, Shishi San has mastered the art of tufting. Never creating the same piece twice has push her to always find new ways to renew herself by imagining new shapes, colours and patterns.
Adopted by a Belgian couple when she was still very young, Shishi San is originally from Vietnam, which has inspired her artistic practice tremendously. Vietnamese culture being heavily linked to China, Japan and Korea, through their shared history, East and Southeast Asia are her main source of inspiration. Shishi San explores her cultural legacy by drawing inspiration from their folklore and traditions, adopting their visual identity whilst adding a touch of her own personal history to create a body of work that embodies her psyche.
Since 2022, Shishi San broke free from the two-dimensional constraints imposed by traditional tufting to explore its sculptural potential. Breaking away from conventional tufting, she created her first fluffy vase, a three-dimensional tufted vase. With their vibrant colours and organic motifs, her vases have very quickly become recognised internationally and have become her trademark.
