Thomas Renwart (°1995) graduated in 2019 at LUCA School of Arts gaining his masters in Textiles. After his studies he developed a textiles practice where crafts-ship and poetic depictions of a horticultural universe constantly meet. Starting with written matter, a world is built around it, carefully translated into tactile matter. Thomas' techniques are jacquard weaving, embroidery, quilting and digital printing. .
