yarn bomb

Yarn bombing. It's all the rage. Forget graffiti, murals and Banksy; the coolest thing on the street-art scene at the moment is also known as 'grandma graffiti' and involves guerilla-style crocheting of public features such as statues, lamp posts and buildings. Amazing.  Magda Sayek is one of the more well-known yarn-bombers of today; in the art scene she's also known as Knitta, Please and recently collaborated with INSIGHT on their mind-blowing 'Untitled' campaign. LA's preeminent photo and film studio, Smashbox Studios, recently featured this awesome new artistic medium on their blog, Yello; definitely take the time out to read their great little article on the yarn bombing phenomenon here.
