The Pachanga collection - Pachanga means festive party in Spanish - was created by Ecuadorian artist Belén Mena in 2003, when she became captivated by the intense colors and intricate patterns of several moths during one moonlit evening. She spent the next five years in the forests ofEcuadorobserving, photographing, drawing and cataloging the moths which served as the inspiration for this collection of illustrations and patterns.
