Yarn is the latest flourishing material for street art that has only recently been tapped into. We’ve covered a large number of knitting initiatives including Magda Sayeg’s work in New York (aka Knitta Please) and Sydney-based Denise Litchfield. Equally impressive is the work of Hungarian artist, Babukatorium, who was inspired to create a crocheted installation after watching A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Her colorful design contains 247 spiderweb circles which took 3 months to create and then another 3 months to attach to the tree. Babukatorium regularly contributes to public art projects and also came to be known for her participation in the Let’s Colour Project.
