Textile embroidery art from Africa

Monday, 14 July, 2014

We are loving artist Sophie Standing’s colorful textile collages of animals. Standing lives and works in Kenya where she finds inspiration in African wildlife, particularly endangered species like elephants, lions, and rhinoceroses. To create her collages she first “paints or sketches on fabric and then draws from a vast collection of decorative fabrics acquired from her travels around the world to create a dense patchwork of color and texture. The artwork is then finished with dense line work applied with a sewing machine.” So beautiful. Visit Colossal for more on Sophie.
