über embroiderers : : Maricor/Maricar

I’m trying to keep up a sort of regular ‘feature’ on über embroiderers on The Smallest Forest: These are the big kids, the crème de la crème, the leet of needle and thread…that runts like me long to play with, but will never even exist in the same universe with…

Not necessarily technical virtuosos or professional embroiderers, but artists who do strange, new and wonderfully unusual things with embroidery…creativity, concept, media, message. Just…different, somehow.

Maricor / Maricar have done it again. Hong Kong Airport commissioned them to do billboard graphics celebrating the food of the world. The word “Delicious” is spelled out in different languages, the letters made up of images of the foods from that particular region.

The über embroiderers designed these whimsical letter forms in various alphabets, and then stitched them up beautifully. The colors and clever play between images of yummy things and letter forms is a real treat for the senses. Impeccable work, as usual, ladies!
