Watch Artist Benjamin Shine Create Intricate Faces Out of Wispy Fabric in His NYC Studio

Artist Benjamin Shine is an artist that makes 3D sculptures of giant faces, but uses only thin, wispy pieces of tulle fabric to do so. In this artist profile video from New York Magazine, hear what motivates the artist to do what he does, and take a peek inside his New York City studio.

From Bergdorf Goodman and Givenchy to Sotheby’s — and across much of the internet — artist Benjamin Shine’s ethereal work with tulle has made him perhaps the foremost fabric sculptor in practice today. We met with Shine in his studio to see, and try to understand, his process.
