  • Love these, on the right garment with the right placement it could be the coolest thing ever.

  • Georgia

    crazy good. would love to know how long it takes him to finish one?

    • I was wondering the same thing! The reflection in the sunglasses in the 3rd one down is WAY awesome.

  • Ray Materson is another meticulous embroidery artist. He recreated baseball cards and photos using the thread from socks that he traded for his cigarettes when he was in jail.

  • damn… very cool!

  • Definitely reminds me early Chuck Close work!

    • lapetitefaon

      MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY! These are beautiful, and holy its hard enough to pain but to embroider such detail? BLOWN AWAY

  • That is amazing! I would love to see the details in these in person.

  • I do love embroidery. And this is good embroidery. I have to start doing some crafts soon.

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements, which will be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
