Artwork by KUMI YAMASHITA

 

 
Kumi Yamashita, whose mind-blowing artwork has been featured previously (here and here), just unveiled her latest artwork in her ongoing Constellation series.

Posted earlier this afternoon to her official Facebook page, the new piece was privately commissioned.

The Constellation body of work consists of three simple materials that, when combined, produce the portraits: a wooden panel painted a solid white, thousands of small galvanized nails, and a single, unbroken, common sewing thread.

Be sure to see the Sifter’s original post on Constellations for detailed close-up shots.
