Parisian artist Benoit Jammes recently created some brilliant new embroidery work which pays homage to his grandmother and is a modern twist on the textiles of the old days.
Mikael B recently unveiled his newest masterpiece completed last week as his contribution for the annual SHINE Art Festival in St Petersburg, Florida. Here’s what the artist says about there work:
“The belief that you can take any crazy vision and turn it into reality…I had this in mind when I created the mural “Inner Visions” experimenting with the warm the cold, the sharp the soft, the light the dark. All merged together as a vibrant energetic explosion bringing my canvas style alive as a large scale mural. With “Inner Visions” I want to keep dreams alive. Sticking with your vision and what you believe in is so important. When you have a vision it affects your attitude. Your attitude becomes optimistic.”

“Death and Nautilus” portrays a species facing destruction at the hands of humans. I chose to portray the Nautilus because it is symbolic of the timelessness of the ocean environment, which has nurtured the Nautilus over the great expanse of time since prehistory. Their ancestors, which look very much like their modern descendants, navigated the oceans of 500 million years ago. But now, humanity is threatening the health of the oceans with overfishing, pollution, and climate change. This threat is symbolized by the human skeleton of Death, in the painting. The skeleton holds the fate of the Nautilus in his hands. We must take action to protect the ocean, and use its resources in a sustainable way, and prevent the loss of the Nautilus and all the other beautiful and fascinating creatures of the seas.” – Sandra Yagi
