LAS COLORES DE LUIS is a colorful photo embroidery that has a combination between photography and thread. This photo was taken in Casa Estudio Barragan on an amazing trip I did to Mexico City. All these pieces are hand embroidered and framed by me in my studio in Brooklyn, NY. The pieces are sold as framed art pieces in a shadow box, with your choice of white or black frame.

I started this embroidery art project in quarantine last year, and it increasingly became a conversation starter with my friends and family. People soon reached out to me about purchasing and decorating their walls with my unique pieces. All of the art pieces have strong architectural elements paired with embroidery stitches in different colors and patterns forming a balanced composition. Each piece is unique, there is just one of each that exists. You will be taking home a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
These hand embroidered pieces are a great addition to your gallery wall, a living room decoration or as a nightstand art. Buy just one or combine different pieces to make arrangements. They also make great gifts for a loved one on a special occasion.
ABOUT THIS COLLECTION: Hanging by a Thread Collection
I come from a long tradition of textile workers. Weaving has been used as a language, finance system, and as a status symbol. Today this art carries the tradition of many cultures, all with different legacies. Hanging by a Thread explores movement, grids, and structure. It is a visual exploration of the grid, joined by thread. There is a synergy between elements and the usage of weaving patterns in the form of embroidery to tell stories, perhaps the same stories as many other civilizations before us told through thread and color.
I hope this piece inspires you, awakens positive emotions and brings you as much joy to you and your home as it gave me making it.
