Artist stitchguy’s (@stitchguy ) intimate portrayals of g*y couples play with traditional motifs of art and embroidery. his black and white linear representations of the male body are often surrounded or intertwined with bold colors from nature.
“i am constantly exploring my style of expression within a classical aesthetic. the depiction of plants in embroidery is a classical theme, and this is also important to me,” says the japanese artist, who studied fashion in art school, then worked in the industry after graduation.
“i moved away from fashion for a while, due to a strong desire to create artwork that could express more personal aspects. my strengths lay in using needle, thread and cloth, so i started studying embroidery anew and began to make g*y embroidery art.”
inspired by the artist’s own memories, the work draws on stitchguy’s personal experiences as inspiration for its broader lgbtq+ focus. “all of my works are very lovingly and carefully made.”
