One to Watch: Joanne Arnett

American artist, Joanne Arnett has somehow managed to make usually very unflattering mug shots of criminals look, well, actually quite pretty and even a bit seductive. Mixing different coloured threads with wire, Arnett recreates each shot to form a unique tapestry… probably not one you’d receive as an heirloom from your grandparents, but one you’d definitely hang on your wall at uni to show just how alternative you are. Sadly though, each  piece, considering it’s hand woven, is probably worth your left arm so unless you have an arm to spare it’s back to hmv for posters of pulp fiction and scantily clad girls wearing beanies.

Oh hi there man with amazing eyebrows and moustache
