Nicolas A. Moufarrege | Graphic Novels in Needlepoint

Nicolas A. Moufarrege (1947-1985) paired disparate fields of art that one does not associate together: the characters from graphic novels with thread, painted and embroidered works on needlepoint canvas. His subject matter and imagery were equally eclectic - ranging from classical Greek mythology to the modern mythology of American comics, from Van Gogh and Renoir to Japanese woodblock and Roy Lichtenstein, from Michaelangelo to Egyptian decorative motifs, from art to craft. In a brief career as an artist, Moufarrege developed the eye for pairing unexpected partners and the skill to make the bond appear seamless.
