Thomas C. Chung

Thomas C. Chung is changing the perception of knitting as grandma’s hobby with these incredible hand knit and crocheted sculptures. The Chinese-Australian artist completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the College of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales. His work includes soft sculpture, photography and installation usually hand made and labor intensive.  He currently works between Australia and Scandinavia.  On an interview on Knotwe he explains how he got interested in knitting:  

“I started knitting in Scandinavia several years ago.Out of necessity (traveling away from Australia), I needed a material which could literally carry the narrative of my story. Knitting & crocheting fitted all of the things I required out of this (conceptually & practically), so thankfully I eventually got the hang of it.”

More of his wok can be seen on his website, Facebook and Instagram.
