The Amazing ‘Needle Painting’ of Vera Shimunia
The Amazing ‘Needle Painting’ of Vera Shimunia. Vera Shimunia is an amazing embroidery artist from St Petersburg, Russia. For those unfamiliar, ‘needle painting embroidery’ involves intricately stitching together a range of colourful threads onto an embroidery hoop, which in this case is palm-sized.
Many of Vera’s works tend to be landscape-style paintings and she even adds depth and dimension to elements like clouds. She has also experimented with mashups of her embroidered artworks with photographs and illustrations to create some surreal visuals.
