World of Threads Festival – Interview with Robert Davidovitz of Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Robert Davidovitz from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is a fibre artist with a difference. Robert is a weaver. However, he does not use wool, yarn or other kinds of fibre in his woven art pieces. Instead, his works with acrylic paint. Robert extrudes the paint into strands. When dry, he uses the traditional technique of hand-weaving the strands of dry paint to create his art pieces.
