The Art & Craft of Stewart Francis Easton
Stewart Francis Easton is a visual storyteller based in London who works in thread, ink, paint and digital media. Easton received an MA in Illustration and Animation. He has had a number of solo shows both in the UK and USA as well as being involved in numerous group shows in the UK and USA.
Breaking the traditional boundaries of craft, Stewart Francis Easton’s work fuses together hand embroidery, sonic art and design-based illustration. He has been removing the ‘storyline’ of a visual narrative by creating geometric/graphic forms in stitch.
This reassembling of his work ethic in a conscious measured layout enables the viewer to be free of their preconceptions of story. Some of his artworks are part of private collections in the UK and internationally.
