Just how good is Izziyana Suhaimi? Let us count the ways: the Singaporean artist embroiders to pinpoint perfection, dabbles with watercolor, and obviously knows how to wield a pencil. And she tends to do all these things within a single piece of work.
Izziyana first stumbled upon this hybrid technique while doing a school project on medical illustrations. After a bit of experimentation and a lot of enjoyment with embroidery, she soon began incorporating the craft into the majority of her work.
“I don’t think modern art should be a certain way. The beauty of art is in its variety and diversity,” says the artist in a recent interview. “In everything and not just art, boundaries are getting blurred and limitations are being pushed.”
