I fell a little bit speechless when I stumbled upon the gorgeous embroideries by Takashi Iwasaki earlier this week. So many colors, so many details.. all created out of thread, hand-embroidered into the most amazing, eyecatching shapes and figures. MAGIC!
Born in Japan & currently based in Canada, Takashi Iwasaki is a multimedia artist who creates imageries from things he observes or imagines: They may appear to be abstract on the surface, but most shapes and colors have meanings and origins that are very significant to me in the way I feel them, therefore they are very representational and are reflection of my state of mind.
Takashi’s works have been featured in exhibitions worldwide. On his blog you can find some works that are available for purchase. For many more colorful creations (including paintings, murals & collage) visit his site.
