MAD Talks | The Tulle Artistry of Benjamin Shine

Multidisciplinary artist Benjamin Shine discusses and presents examples of his pioneering work with tulle to create ethereal three-dimensional portraits. Shine manipulates a single length of lightweight, fine netted material to fabricate carefully formed faces and figures that suggest ideas of energy, impermanence and explore the relationship between the spiritual and the superficial. 

Shine's work has been exhibited at the Museum of Arts and Design, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Crafts Council UK and The London Design Museum. Clients and collaborations include Givenchy, Maison Margiela, Bergdorf Goodman, Beyonce, Barclays Wealth, Vogue, and Google. Benjamin has also won a number of awards including the Red Dot Design Award, The Enterprising Young Brit Award, and the Arts Export Award in Australia.
