Artist of the Day…Diem Chau

It’s great when art combines many different elements. Sometimes, it’s elements that you wouldn’t even think of putting together…like Diem Chau’s works. This fine artist combines minatures, china, and needlecrafts to create unique, almost sculptural vignettes of everyday life and people.

Diem Chau is a Vietnamese refugee that creates her works using organza, thread, porcelain china, wood, paper, and the most interstingly, crayons. She obtained her BFA in 2002 and since then has shown in exhibitions in New York, Seattle, and LA. Most recently, her crayon carvings were utilized for a World Cup 2010 promotion by Nike.  

Those crayon carvings are my favorite. They are so intricate…then again, I’m liking all of these pieces!
