Threaded Art by Gabriel Dawe

threaded art 1

These stunning threaded art installations were created by the talented Gabriel Dawe. He uses coloured threads to ‘build’ clever artistic sculptures that are inspiring quite unique. They remind me a little of the outdoor sculptures of Melbourne Federation Square. Using threads that span the entire rainbow spectrum, these pieces look different depending on how light shines on them and the angle they are viewed from. Simply amazing, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Here an extract from Gabriel’s Bio:

Gabriel Dawe was born in Mexico City where he grew up surrounded by the intensity and color of Mexican culture. After working as a graphic designer, he moved to Montreal, Canada in 2000 following a desire to explore foreign land. In search for creative freedom he started experimenting and creating artwork, which eventually led him to explore textiles and embroidery—activities traditionally associated with women and which were forbidden for a boy growing up in Mexico. Because of this, his work is subversive of notions of masculinity and machismo that are so ingrained in his culture [ read more ].

►► Clever Car Atlas Rainbow

These clever car atlas rainbow photos are by artist David T.Waller. He used 2500 toy cars to create this stunning circular rainbow. They are arranged by colour to form a really clever piece of art. I don’t know where all the cars came from, but someone’s had quite a collection going on [ SEE MORE ].
