Artist Creates Stunning "Paintings" From Fabric


UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL FABRIC ART
In the hands of Benjamin Shine, a piece of tulle isn’t just for making fancy dresses and curtains. Using nothing but an iron, The British artist turns the fabric into amazingly realistic "paintings".

Shine sculpts, presses and pleats the huge single piece of tulle, whose transparent qualities give the portrait more texture and depth. By layering in this way, the artist obtains different tones and shadows that enable him to realistically depict everything from objects to portraits.

From Bergdorf Goodman and Givenchy to Sotheby’s — and across much of the internet — artist Benjamin Shine’s ethereal work with tulle has made him perhaps the foremost fabric sculptor in practice today. Meet with Shine in his studio to see, and try to understand, his process.
