Gabriel Dawe’s Thread Rainbows

November 19, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Thread installations by Gabriel Dawe.

Gabriel Dawe was born in Mexico City where he grew up surrounded by the intensity and color of Mexican culture. After working as a graphic designer, he moved to Montreal, Canada in 2000 following a desire to explore foreign land. In search for creative freedom he started experimenting and creating artwork, which eventually led him to explore textiles and embroidery—activities traditionally associated with women and which were forbidden for a boy growing up in Mexico. Because of this, his work is subversive of notions of masculinity and machismo that are so ingrained in his culture.

If you like this you’ll love the work of Sébastien Preschoux. (via world’s best)
