Well why don’t you follow the artist, Kumi Yamashita?

It’s follow Friday!  A perfect way to kick off the weekend is an introduction to a unbelievably talented artist, Kumi Yamashita.  The Japanese artist uses three simple materials to produce her work in the series Constellations;  a board,  thousands of nails, and one loooong string.  She wrapped the one piece of string around 7,000 nails to create photorealistic portraits.  Incredible!  She usually only completes a few each year because of the time it takes her.  Yamashita also created some mind-blowing shadow art that is definitely worth a look.

Hannah and I are off to Art 14 today.  Excited to see what all the hype is about, and share it with you.  Only in its second year, and already many wonderful reviews.   Have a good weekend!
