Satoru Aoyama

Only with the naked eye one could appreciate the astonishing fact that this photo-realistic work, which at first seems to be a traditional oil painting or photograph, is in fact embroidery. unlike other embroidery artists, he makes every effort to disguise his stitch-work and any evidence that his work is handmade. Once you notice this, you find yourself quickly drawn into his unique world.
