Kumi Yamashita is more magician than artist. This piece is named Mana and is part of a larger project called Constellation. Using a single unbroken black thread, Kumi winds her way through densely packed nails to create intricate portraits of those close to her.
(This is part of a new series I’m trying out. Monday mornings can feel a little bit flat – especially after a particularly blissful weekend like mine just passed – so I’m going to post something every week to make you gasp, to fill you with delight, to make those Monday mornings a little bit easier to get through. I hope you enjoy them.)
