Izziyana Suhaimi Artwork is adorably kitsch. The Singapore artist Izziyana Suhaimi primarily uses embroidery and has been exhibited in Singapore, the Philippines, Taiwan and Japan. Suhaimi melds her interest in traditional and popular cultures often capturing portraiture of modern youths while using craft techniques.
After drawing or watercoloring her work, Suhaimi then embroiders over top of it, making the design truly pop. From cozy beanies to adorable collar detailing, the work is transformed from flat into extraordinary.
Though this process requires endless patience, Suhaimi discusses her attraction to the art on her Tumblr, explaining that her connection to craft is based in "the evidence of the hand and its time-consuming aspect, which runs counter to the instant gratification and mass-production centred age of today." Clearly, her beautifully stitched work is evidence of this, and attests to her skills as an artist.
