Hormazd Narielwalla is a London-based artist who is known for his geometric collages made from repurposed tailoring and sewing patterns. His work also encompasses original prints, artist books, and sculpture. After moving to the UK from his home of Pune, India, to study fashion, he had a conversation with a Savile Row Tailor that changed the course of his art practice. The tailor described the disposal of bespoke paper patterns of customers who had passed away and this ended up influencing Narielwalla’s creative journey and continues to play a large role within his work.
Narielwalla has an impressive resume. His work is held in public and private collections worldwide, some of which include the Victoria & Albert Museum, The Ben Uri Museum Collection, the British Library, Fashion Institute of Technology, New York; and Parsons School of Art & Design, New York.
