Cross-Stitch Street Art In Spain by Raquel Rodrigo

Yesterday we brought you Christo Guelov, a Bulgarian artist who’s transforming the streets of Madrid with his playful crosswalk designs. Now we’d like to introduce you to Raquel Rodrigo, a Spanish artist and set designer who is also adding her own colorful touch to Spain’s streets by turning them into beautiful floral cross-stitch installations.

The Valencia-born artist makes her pieces by wrapping thick rolls of string around wire mesh. She prepares them in advance and then unrolls them at her chosen location to bring a dash of color and creativity to the surrounding area. As cross-stitch patterns are generally found on things inside the home, her public installations create an eye-catching contrast to the urban landscapes in which they exist.

''Earth without art is just..eh'' they say. And they're right! Works like these are the proof! :)

The problem is the cross stitch doesn't look that great when blown up like this. It doesn't really work for me on a large scale. Cool idea though!

Exactly the same thing I thought I've used the same pattern on a canvas then plastic canvas and hated it I love it from a distance though
