Blow Your Mind Embroidery!

Daniel Kornrumpf Embroidery Portrait 1

Daniel Kornrumpf has a pretty impressive pedigree. He received a BFA from Kutztown University in Kutztown, Pennsylvania and an MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He’s even had work shown at the Cambridge Art Association and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Museum.

But none of that is why I’ve posted his work. I did because it is so insanely detailed and so reminiscent of the brush strokes of a Van Gogh. The more I looked at it, the more I liked it. Look for yourself.

And here is Van Gogh’s work.

Its amazingly close, considering the mediums are so entirely different. It’s not actually that surprising. But nonetheless still beautiful.

Even more interesting is that these pieces are actually close ups of his work. The actual work is a small image in the center of a large embroidery “canvas.” Which I find both interesting and a little disappointing to be honest. But I can see how forcing you to get close to the work would create a different and intimate experience. Either way, I thought his embroidery work was amazing. Daniel does portraits in other mediums, such as drawing and painting, as well.

Here are a couple more images of his embroidery work.
