modern string art

string art on wood by hownowdesign
In the room that I slept in at my grandmother's house, there were two pieces of string art hanging on the wall. One, of a horse, was on black velvet and had a fringed mane that hung free. The other was a mustard and brown mushroom that my mother had made as a child. While I was never particularly drawn to them, I feel that their presence in my life is what is compelling me to like hownowdesign's modern take on string art.

The contrasting colors are striking and the relatively simple shape is complicated by intersecting lines and added dimension. Needless to say, I think this would look great hanging on my wall.
