Wrought in rich metallic hues with a subtle sheen, the delicate Oriental art of Kazuhito Takadoi uses intricate stitching to create almost 3D graphics.

The gleaming masterpieces are perforated by spools of string woven through the plain white backdrops, with vague shapes emulating the natural elements found in an empty landscape. Some of the images show blossoming trees back-lit by glowing moons, while others feature orbs that seem to almost pop out of the page, and some of them actually do puff out for an added dimension. Using thin, shimmering threads in this series allows for detailed textures and lines to create movement and visual interest in each piece of artwork.

Kazuhito Takadoi explores the perfect harmony of shape and texture of the natural environment in this series of embroidered Oriental art.
