i’m jealous of takashi iwasaki

“…balance, color, composition, contrast, push-pull effect, shape, texture, variety of mark makings, visual weight…” These are the elements that go into the colorful, beautifully bizarre {embroidered!} wonderlands that are the work of Winnipeg based artist Takashi Iwasaki. Now, where did I put my sewing kit… I’m suddenly feeling very inspired!

    I love his work too, and I own and enjoy one of his paintings. It’s actually Takashi Iwasaki.

    I own one too-a drawing. He is a fabulous artist. Well-worth every penny…You should check out his gallery, Semai, as well.
