Portrait Series — a series of cross-stitched portraits of people around me (on-going project)

(Each portrait is about 7cm wide 9.4cm long, 28 colours, worked on Aida cloth. )

Inspired by the German photographer Thomas Ruff’s portraits
, I wanted to document people around me. Instead of taking photographs of them, I started cross-stitching their ID photos. Each coloured cross-stitch becomes pixel, 28 coloured DMC threads became a pixelated portrait. Pixel, a digital concept is replaced by cross-stitch, the oldest form of embroidery. 

*You can order your portrait embroidery, You'll get the finished portrait and process scan images. (email to
