As crocheters, we know that our craft isnâ€™t just about practical pieces â€“ it can truly be art as well. Warsaw-based street artist NeSpoon is proving this with her stunning graffiti works, which use doily motifs as well as huge pieces of crocheted lace to create works of art for everyone to enjoy. NeSpoon says: â€œSince the collapse of communism, the city landscape here has been destroyed by the invasion of millions of ads, mostly illegally placed. I decided to improve the public space on my own, using my art skills. I thought that if the largest, reputable companies can operate illegally
in public spaces â€“ I can too!â€ She continues: â€œI use lace patterns, because in every lace we can find a universal aesthetic code, which is deeply embedded in every culture. In every lace we find symmetry, some kind of order and harmony.â€
