Amazing Button Art

This past Monday, November 16, was National Button Day, so I wanted to take a moment to share the work of a couple of artists who use buttons to make some really amazing art.

Florida artist Augusto Esquivel makes the most amazing hanging button "sculptures" with just sewing buttons and monofilament. Ranging from celebrity portraits to super-cool dimensional renderings of everyday objects, Esquivel's works offer a fascinating glimpse into the nature of form and permanence. I would love to see these in person! Check out his website and watch the short video on the homepage.

UK artist Jane Perkins uses lots of buttons in addition to lots of other "upcycled" stuff  to make her reimagined portraits, old masters images, iconic photos, and more, such as this rendition of Father Christmas.

Using more than 7,000 vintage buttons, clothing designers Gwen Evans and Linda Varela collaborated on this button-encrusted dress. You can find out more about their collaboration here.
