《资讯 | 缝纫机的针尖艺术》
缝纫机作画见过么？Arun Kumar Bajaj却拥有这一项独特的技艺，确切的讲不能说是绘画，而是缝纫。这一针尖功夫可谓非常了得，他创作的艺术作品栩栩如生，乍一看犹如超写实绘画，令人无不惊叹。
Arun Kumar Bajaj has a very unusual skill – he can paint with a sewing machine. Technically, it’s embroidering, not painting, but his artworks are so incredibly detailed that they could pass as hyper-realistic paintings to the untrained eye. And the fact that he does it all with a sewing machine just makes it that much more impressive.
Arun was really good at drawing and painting growing up and dreamed of becoming a famous painter, but his father’s sudden death, 15 years ago, foiled his plans and forced him to abandon school in order to run the family business. His father was a tailor and he became one too, but he didn’t let the artist in him die. Instead, he started “painting” with needle and thread, but instead of using his hands, he decided on a rather unusual embroidering tool – the sewing machine. It took him a while to master this unique art form, but today he is recognized as the world’s only sewing machine artist.
“I’ve been stitching for the last 23 years since I was 12,” the 35-year-old artist told DNA India. “My father was a tailor but he died early when I was 16, and I had to drop out of school to take over the shop. I was good at sketching in school, and this was a way I could combine the two arts.”
“I didn’t want to remain just a darzi (tailor) all my life,” Arun added. “I wanted to make a name for myself, even though my obsession has caused financial uncertainty to my family.”
Luckily, his perseverance paid off, and his works became sought after both in India and abroad. It’s easy to see why, just by looking at them, but what really makes his embroideries special is the tool he uses.
Many countries around the world have a rich tradition of embroidered tapestries, and you could probably find a few to rival Arun Kumar Bajaj’s in detail, but good luck finding any that were made with a sewing machine. You won’t, and there’s a good reason for that.
“You need to be very precise because once you’ve stitched the cloth, there’s no way you can undo it,” Arun said. “I also don’t overstitch – it’s all done in a single layer to give the painting a neat look.”
Arun runs a tailoring business in the Adalat Bazar of Patiyala, but he dedicates a lot of his time to his artistic pursuits as well. You can check out more of his amazing sewing machine “paintings” on his Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/pg/inuvashan.

A man cannot have too many dreams. But which one should you pursue and be completed? If you have a dream, plz go for it even there’s obstacle awaits you, just don’t give up such easily. Do something you love to, do something that makes you happy. We are not looking for fame but to achieve our value. That’s why the job is only a job, and it’s no need to give away your dreams, your hobbies to die down. In reality, most of the time, we have to work for our own survival or for families. But what if we lost hope, lost expectation, lost dreams, just work and work and work, and then all we left would be dead men walking among the society. Therefore, I share this article to you all, hoping those who had lost their dreams to pick them up again, try to create your own world, to have a secret garden of your own, to feel the true meaning of life.
BTW, I’m working on my next new CG painting, should be released in a couple of months later. Thx for all your constant support. And at my leisure time, I’ll still try my best to share arts and language with you guys in order to improve your ability for aesthetics, to boost your vocabularies and reading comprehension. Maybe later, you will fall for languages and fall under the spell of arts. Arts cannot hold a candle to science & technology, even to finance. Because, if there are no arts, we may live in a world with no music, no paintings, no photography, no dance, no books, no movies, no video games, no culture, no history. And for companies, their products may won’t be sold successfully, their brands will not be known around the world. So, we have to take our hats off to designers, artists, art creators. Show respects for them since they transform their thoughts into something that could beautify our world, bring insights for mankind, and offer the society with aesthetics, literature, ergonomics, etc.
