About Luke


Luke Haynes was born and raised across the American South. After formal training in art and architecture at Cooper Union, New York, Luke Haynes began experimenting with quilting art.

A chance encounter with a box of fabric remnants sparked Mr. Haynes’ imagination. His first quilt, measuring 7″² x 10″², led him through years of experimentation and improvements.

Subverting the traditional quilting form by integrating modern concepts, his art transforms the comfortably familiar. Further honing his style, Mr. Haynes developed a system to piece manageable parts into a larger whole, applying a modern design sense to a familiar process.

The concept is cool.. Must have taken a lot of effort. That aside, the finished "look" has been done before.

Sheppard Fairey and Chuck Close had a son, then turned that child over to Vera Bradley Co. to work the ol' sweat shops for a while. Very Good.

Very interesting stuff. Does he do anything other than portraits? Like to see more variety in choice of subjects.

I love the way the image is created in blocks of color and texture.
