MEET THE ARTIST
MOVEMENT. TEXTURE. BALANCE. VIBRANCY. IMPACT. SATURATION. DETAIL.
The Toltec Designs aesthetic exists in the positive negative & space, where geometric lines meet, the natural world is illuminated, & contrast is celebrated.
Artist, designer, & visual thinker, Alida Carlson, believes that tools are everything. Her creative process is influenced by the Toltec civilization that flourished in Mexico beginning in the 12th century. They believed that tools encouraged a profound connection to your inherent wisdom. Starting from tangible materials, Alida creates intricate line-work & textures by hand, which are then manipulated using digital techniques, bringing the pages of her sketchbook to life. The Toltec viewed the universe as a complex energy system; all energy has consciousness. Alida sees her creations as an energy exchange; sharing potent positivity from one mind to another.
