Ian Hundley - Artist / Quilter
Hundley's quilts are not your traditional quilt--he radically reinterprets quilting and gives it a more masculine, modern edge.

Hundley is a native Canadian with a degree in graphic design.
Did some modeling in New York with his twin brother..
Spent 3 years doing PR at Michael Kors then began assisting artists after experiencing "fashion world burn-out"

Later he decided to combine all of his talents/skills (which included sewing) by making quilts.
He cites aerial land photography and topographical maps as inspirations for his works.

"Hundley is a prolific quilt-maker. Now, when he creates new pieces, he takes a more focused approach, often enlarging just one section of a map. The artist projects the segment onto a wall and traces what he feels are the map's most visually compelling elements. This becomes the working pattern from which he painstakingly cuts, pins and sews hundreds of pieces of fabric (taken from his own clothes, or donated by friends). Hundley works in solitude, sewing eight to ten hours each day. Treating his medium as seriously as ge would painting or sculpture--with due diligence and respect for aesthetics--Hundley has transformed a traditional craft into a versatile art that can transform your walls and still keep you feeling cozy."

Information and exerpt from Sonya Mooney's article "Map Quest" in surface magazine issue 63.

i think it's worth taking a look..
it's cool to see him in action and how the pieces of his quilt correspond to the maps he takes inspiration from
