Danny Amazonas, a Taiwan-based textiles artist, is bringing his kaleidoscopic works to Australia at the Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair (3-6 July).

Amazonas’ complex mosaic quilts often feature animals such as elephants and tigers. His process begins with selecting an array of fabrics in bold and contrasting colours that are then meticulously cut into small pieces. The results are captivating works with a message of advocacy. ‘One of my passions is to bring awareness to conservation of endangered animals through my artwork,’ says Amazonas on his Instagram account.
