VeryFirstTo exclusively unveils striking tapestry artwork by contemporary artist and craftsman Eliot Ward, whose work follows the school of Pointillism. His pieces are created using small distinct dots of colour with soft fibrous yarn, rather than paint. He creates the impactful imagery through an intricate compilation of tiny patterns of hand stitches and knots. The textures he generates are full of light and shade. When viewed from a distance the pieces pull into astoundingly photographic accuracy. He achieves a life-like realism awash with beautifully observed detail. Ward focuses on just a small section of his subjects, isolating just enough of their face to give an accurate portrait. His economy of scale adds intrigue to the piece, a precious fabric swatch suspended in a state of the art Perspex void. He is an artist who is also an extraordinarily gifted craftsman. 

The pieces are available to purchase and bespoke work can be commissioned. For information on commissioning an Eliot Ward artwork, please fill in the form.
