Takashi Iwasaki is an artist who works in a number of media, including these embroidery pieces, which absolutely blew me away:



He says about his work:

‘Life is too short to take gravely all the time. I want to delight in what I can when I can. Having this as my essential philosophy, my goal of art making is to create a positive and playful atmosphere, and generate warm feelings of intimacy and substance through my work.’
