Model Study 51
Born and raised in Hoboken, New Jersey, Stephen Wilson is a conceptual artist whose unique medium carries his message. Blending luxury fabric, digital renderings, 3D printed sculptures, laser engraved acrylics and highly detailed embroidery pieces, Wilson's manipulation of multiple materials produces wholly unique works of art. His work reflects fashion influence, American aesthetic, and traditional quilting techniques. His early career in the commercial fashion industry along with a wildly successful embroidery software company has equipped Stephen with a range of technical skills. Stephen is a master level digitizer who has been creating embroidery designs and quilting patterns for over 20 years. As a fine artist, he is deeply interested in the intersection of traditional craft and contemporary culture, witnessed through his use of fabrics that have never been used in traditions crafting - everything from Hermes silk scarves, fashion fabrics like wool, boucle from Chanel and Louis Vuitton leather to create unique works that are sculptural, skillful and surprising.
