British artist Benjamin Shine has discovered a new way to create distinctively unique paintings: tulle art. By using a single piece of fabric, he strategically folds the fabric on a canvas using an iron to create textures and a variety of different tones.
The works are made from using a single colour, but with his innovative techniques, he is able to create depth and tone with his pieces. Subjects range from iconic figures such as Princess Diana to mysterious characters.
“The idea of ‘painting with fabric’ led to the development of this technique where the portrait image is created through the intricate pleating and pressing of a single length of tulle fabric. The technique aims to utilize the translucent qualities of the tulle fabric to generate various gradients, tones and textures.” – Benjamin Shine
