Korean Embroidery

The Korean Embroidery paintings are breathtaking, meticulous works done by Korean artists.  The works engage the use of Chasu, a traditional form of Korean embroidery.  The silk thread used takes the place of the conventional paint to create artistic masterpieces that appear to be oil on canvas painting when viewed from afar but the close up of the painting shows the detailed artistry of the embroidery.

Chasu is a traditional form of Korean embroidery, which dates back to the Joseon Dynasty.  Chasu was a method of fostering beauty in everyday life.  Thus, it has become a way for Koreans to express their concept of beauty.
