Tilleke Schwarz is an artist from the Netherlands.
She describes her work as “a kind of visual poetry. It is a mixture of contemporary influences, graffiti, icons, texts and traditional images from samplers. The embroidery contains narrative elements. Not really complete stories, with a beginning, a storyline, and an end. On the contrary, the narrative structures are used as a form of communication with the viewer.”
Each of her pieces is filled with creativity, colour, humour and life. They are a feast for the eyes.
The style is quite unique. It’s playful, it’s vibrant, it’s great. It’s Tilleke Schwarz!
