Titles of Works:
In his series “Embroidery 3.0″, Mario Klingemann plays with the tradition of cross-stitching, which, along with mosaic art, is one of the earliest precursors of pixel art.
With a twinkle in his eye, he mixes classic cross-stitch fonts with emoticons and transforms the traditionally religious or “home sweet home”-tinged themes into the world of social media or crypto communities.
