Map and Celestial Star Chart Portraits by Ed Fairburn

WHY: I like the way the top one uses the lines of the map to create tone and how the others use circles to add interesting tone. This is similar to my chosen artist Akumu Kurai.

We’ve been seeing a lot of embroidered art as of late but I must say that so far, I’ve been most impressed by Singaporean artist Izziyana Suhaimi‘s work. I can’t get over how skillfully she is able to incorporate ornate embroidery techniques with her own pencil drawings and watercolors, pushing the boundaries of traditional and popular culture. Simply beautiful.

I am so impressed by Singaporean artist Izziyana Suhaimi‘s work. She merges embroidery techniques into her own pencil drawings and watercolors, blurring an absolutely beautiful line between skille.

Matthew Cusick.. I love his map art. I teach an art project to high school students using maps and painting over them, inspired by his work.

Artist Ed Fairburn has recently come out with new works that live somewhere between sculptures and drawings. Hes still using traditional ink to draw on maps but now hes cutting and layering maps to create incredibly intriguing works.
