Seattle-based artist Shaun Kardinal has created a series of hand-embroidered paper collage using vintage postcards, ephemera and found objects. This multidisciplinary artist likes to create, curate and follow visual art online. He often meanders second hand stores in search for inspiration and raw materials. On Dirty Laundry Mag he says this about his work:
“I loved the tactility of the puncture. I was attracted to the vibrant hues and romantic nostalgia that wasn’t my own. It was also fun to seek out the postcards, with their antique store ubiquity.
“I enjoy the ideation and execution of my projects more than making money, and as long as I’m in a position to be able to make that happen, I would like to continue doing so.”
