I used to watch a lot of VH1 when I was a kid. If it was Pop Up Video, the music videos would play and have fun facts about the song and artist pop up on the screen.

Susana Blasco creates haunting art drawn from vintage photos overlaid with contrasting, colorful images, creating a startling and beautiful juxtaposition of not only old and new but in some also color and black and white. Blasco is an artist and graphic designer based in Spain, where she creates the visual contradictions and reimagined photographs.

Offscreen, Diane has become an advocate for immigrant rights after going viral with an LA Times op-ed and CNN interview last year.
