The first full publication of Stephen Wilson's sumptuous artwork,

which blends Pop Art influences with traditional crafting and haute

couture fabrics. The lavish illustration and vibrant design bring the

works to life on the page while illuminating text has much to offer

fans of fashion as well as fans of contemporary art.


The luxurious detail and intricacy of Stephen Wilson's work reveals

his deep interest in the intersection between traditional craft and

contemporary culture. Blending couture fabrics, digital renderings,

3D-printed sculptures, laser-engraved acrylics and highly detailed

embroidery pieces, Wilson's manipulation of multiple materials

produces wholly original works of art. Influenced by pop and street

art as well as traditional quilting and handicrafts, he creates each

unique piece in his North Carolina studio, using both traditional and

modern tools. They often contain millions of stitches and take

hundreds of hours to create. His work evokes questions regarding

luxury consumerism as he deploys fabrics such as Hermès silk,

Chanel wool, and other couture textiles to recreate iconic pop

culture images. This elegantly designed volume will be the first full

treatment of this masterful artist's work.



Designed and crafted with a modern eye and luxurious up-cycled materials. These reimagined pieces have their own unique style. 


An exquisite blend of hand-digitized embroidery, collage and assemblage goes into each and every piece. 


Pieces are framed in clear acrylic ready for display and presented in luxurious packaging.
