Bursting with intense colour, abstract marks and expressive lines of thread, embroidery artist Yumiko Arimoto builds up fine layers of delicate stitch to create these stunning pieces. Full of energy and movement it’s almost as though these stitched patterns have been painted on with a bold stroke of a brush. Yumiko plays with scale, working with large scale installations to small, fragile embellished bags. See more of her work by visiting her website.

Patternbank are loving these psychedelic paintings by Brooklyn based artist Eric Shaw. Using Gouache and Ink Eric creates these intricate, imaginative worlds full of wild multicolour camouflage patterns, carefully considered colours and seemingly random perspective and composition resulting in an almost mythical religious feel to the paintings. Check out more on his Flickr page.
The boundaries between Claire Basler’s art, studio and home blur just like the paintings and floral arrangements she creates. Working from a former ironworks just outside Paris, Claire paints huge canvases, murals, textiles and ceramics. The surroundings are as inspiring as the work itself and her love of nature and skills in floral arrangement are just breathtaking.
