40 Times People Demonstrated Their Magnificent Embroidery Works

Anyone who says “I am not creative” is wrong. Obviously, we all have a creative sense, it is just a matter of honing it to a specific aspect. Giving life to something original that you have created yourself is so rewarding. Fulfilling this is one of the most satisfying feelings you can have in life. Such is the case with embroidery, which is an art game played with a needle and threads. In fact, every culture has some form of it in their textile art history. While embroidery is practiced across the world, its origin stems from China and the Near East.

Until now, embroidery has played a role in decorating and enhancing the beauty of the fabric. It remains one of the top methods of logo apparel decoration for a number of reasons. For instance, keeping your hands busy and engaged in your embroidery keeps your thoughts focused on the enjoyment, beauty and satisfaction of the task at hand.  All problems are thus left behind in this realm of peace and calm – it get us through the tough times in life. Additionally, the deeper you progress with your embroidery, the more it challenges you because it provides a sense that there is always more to be discovered.  

For this reason, the subreddit r/Embroidery contains various works of embroidery. With 430K members, this online community unites all enthusiasts of the trade who want to exchange tips, strategies, resources, ideas, and to show off their greatest works, of course. So, check out the gallery below. Furthermore, don’t forget to upvote your favorites!

“I Need References To Transcribe The World Around Me”: Photographer Goes Viral After Calling Out Prize-Winning Student For Stealing Her And Others’ Work

There’s a thin line between inspiration and full-on copying. Although music and movies are two of the most well-known forms of entertainment that suffer the most from copyright infringement, plagiarism is not so uncommon in the art world as well.

Recently, a famous photographer Jingna Zhang, better known as “zemotion,” suffered copyright infringement and posted about it on Twitter. The woman posted a tweet saying that some artist ripped off her photograph from a cover shoot for Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam to make his oil pointing. The unoriginal painting also won a cash prize and was exhibited at Luxembourg’s Strassen Stroossen Culture Center.

The photographer posted a series of tweets explaining the entire situation. The oil painting by artist Jeff Dieschburg is almost identical to zemotion’s photograph. In addition, it appears that it was not the first time artist full-on plagiarised someone’s work. Below you’ll find the series of tweets that Jingna Zhang has posted and some spot-on reactions from Twitter users.
