It’s been said that art comes in all forms, and one artist is definitely challenging that claim. Benjamin Shine uses an iron instead of a paintbrush, and fabric instead of paint. By carefully ironing out particular angles, Shine creates beautiful portraits made out of tulle. The airy and light texture makes tulle the perfect fabric to craft.
Shine comes from a family involved in the garment industry and has a history working in fashion. But instead of creating clothing for people, Shine turns clothing into people.
Shine tries to create the illusion of smoke by the fabric, so it requires a lot of patience. Sometimes it could take 100 hours to accurately create a portrait.
