Frequently Asked Questions...

Anyone know of any Chinese embroidery artists?

I am looking for artists that work with thread, fabrics e.t.c. for school and I am interested in Chinese embroidery. Any artists out there? I would like a link to their website if possible please! Contemporary or not, it does not matter. Thanks in advance!
Forgot to mention. The topic right now is the human form and it's influence in art. So, preferably I would like art on the human body etc.

Answer:

Embroiderers are mostly anonymous, but there are tons of information out there on Chinese embroidery, particularly historical embroidery. See, e.g.: http://www.asia-art.net/chinese_embroid.html
