Craftsperation: Evelin Kasikov

CMYK Stitch - NFTU

This blog is getting  stitchier and craftier by the post, and this craftsperation is no exception. Evelin Kasicov is a designer that explores that unknown relationship between embroidery and print. With a background in Graphic Design and a MA from Central St Martin’s, Evelin is the inventor of CKMY embroidery. Using the colours used in the printing process (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black) she prints a design, hand stitches to with different thicknesses and overlapping, and creates her own typographical images composed of different tints of these colours. This embroidery is not stereotypically feminine or decorative, but analytical and precise. She has had previous commissions for Wired, The Guardian, Dezeen, and produced little make your own kits at the Poundshop by Mother – which I annoyingly was at but didn’t spot, but will be will be keeping an eye on in the future. Her website is also lovely, and often shows what every nosey crafty wants to look at… the back of the work.
