Cloths of Heaven, new print from Seb Lester.British designer and 8 Faces interviewee, Seb Lester, released a new limited edition print today. ‘Cloths of Heaven’, based on the poem ‘Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven’ by W B Yeats, is available both as a print and embroidered artwork.“Yeats’s poem references ‘embroidered cloths’ and ‘gold and silver threads’, so I wanted to try to make the screen print look like an exquisite and timelessly beautiful piece of highly ornamental needlework. I’ve drawn from Medieval, Renaissance and 18th-century sources but I have also tried to integrate personal, progressive and irreverent flourishing ideas. The result is a hybrid stylistic treatment that I think could only exist in the 21st century.”See more onI Love Typography
Reminds me instantly of another artist that we know who you may have heard of as Amir is my BFF! Similar but not identical, while Amir has a more quirky way with his work, Sara is more complex as she is able to set a mood and tone to her work, little touches like that can make a huge difference.
