Silk Embroidery Paintings Embroidered by Yang Shouyu

Yang Shouyu, contemporary Chinese embroidery artist and founder of random stitch embroidery. The random stitch embroidery is a perfect combination of traditional Chinese embroidery and Western oil paintings. Random stitch embroidery uses vertical-diagonal and horizontal-diagonal lines of differeing lengths to create pictures layer by layer. It is just like the way sketches are done in Western paintings. Works of embroidery are produced from a seemingly mess of lines. Many of the patterns of random stitch embroideries are based on oil paintngs, photos and sketches. It is a new and unique embroidery style that is different from traditional embroidery that uses neat, even and tight stitches.
