Artist Mixes Calligraphy With Embroidery and the Results Are Amazing

Olga Kovalenko describes herself as a big letter lover and a lettering artist who has a huge passion for calligraphy.

“It was always interesting for me to expand perceptual limits of calligraphy,” the artist shared on Bored Panda. “And one day I found myself embroidering one of my letterings. With time I got the idea to connect two beautiful arts — the fast (expressive calligraphy) and the slow one (hand embroidery). It makes you think about the deceitfulness of time.”

To create her art, from sketch to final work, she needs about 30 hours. She is currently taking on commissions and is always interested in collaborations with other artists.

“I make a theme with simple stitches — backstitch, satin stitch, and French knots,” she added.
