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.
