Embroidery Portrait Artist Cayce Zavaglia

Cayce Zavalia is an Embroidery Portrait Artist from Australia. Her work focuses exclusively on the portraits of friends, family, and fellow artists.  Cayce's work is all hand sewn using cotton and silk thread or crewel embroidery wool. From a distance they read as hyper-realistic paintings, and only after closer inspection does the work’s true construction reveal itself.




Over the years, Cayce has developed a sewing technique that allows her to blend colors and establish tonalities that resemble the techniques used in classical oil painting.   The direction in which the threads are sewn mimic the way brush marks are layered within a painting which, in turn, allows for the allusion of depth, volume, and form. Her stitching methodology borders on the obsessive, but ultimately allows her to visually evoke painterly renditions of flesh, hair, and cloth.

Sara Shakeel Turns Stretch Marks Into Glittery Works Of Art

Collage artist Sara Shakeel reveres stretch marks by filling them with glitter. They are, after all, symbols of a women’s experience and growth—so why shy them?In hopes of getting people to better appreciate their natural forms, Shakeel encourages followers to send photos of their stretch marks and have her highlight, and not conceal, them.

fb-SaraShakeel

The response has been surreal so far. “I cannot explain how overwhelmed I was to see around 300 emails of stretch marks, cellulite, [and] scars and the best part is I am getting requests from men asking if I can put glitter on their marks too!”

Artworks made using cut wood, acrylic paing and color stain by Lior Vaturi

Lior Vaturi is an Israeli-born artist who works in New York City.


fb-lion

His current work depicts a range of subject matters, drawing inspiration both from nineteenth century reprographic technique and modern day digital expression. Using both halftone and pixel grids, combined with cut wood, acrylic paint and color stain, surfaces start to take shape, resulting in an optical illusion effect that can be experienced up close and from a distance.

Lior's background and experience in the graphic and design industry serves as foundation for this shift in his creative practice, where, through almost meditative like process, he explores a more tactile and tangible interpretation of a visual expression.
