Sculptural Embroidery by Itamar Yehiel
Embroidery is a global and ancient craft that was always used as a platform for storytelling. Women who had no other form of expression brought their cultural and personal stories to the fabrics, using only needle and thread. For a decade I explored different continents and countries and was always fascinated by the local and traditional crafts. As a self-taught artist, I use this ancient and international language to tell new stories, both personal and global, cultural and emotional.
