This artist stitches portraits onto his hand with a needle and thread.
David Cata is artist from Galicia — an autonomous community in Spain. Cata uses many different mediums, but his hand sewing performance pieces definitely get the most attention.
When asked about his work, Cata said:
All of my person work is baring of my most intimate self. And all of it has a reason and symbolism beyond the morbid fascination that the technique may cause.
As unsettling as his work may be, his portraits are amazing.
