Steven Wilson is nothing if not imaginative. Case in point: His framed art pieces cleverly fashioned from up-cycled luxury bags, boxes, silk scarves and handbags. The North Carolina artist deconstructs the boxes and bags, creating canvases for his creations. He adds custom-designed embroidery directly through the materials, punching up their graphics while delivering intriguing texture. As finishing touches, select appliqués, patches and butterflies are stitched out individually and placed onto each piece to complete the artist’s captivating compositions.
