Comments Off on Exquisite cross-stitch street art adds colorful blooms to Spains city streets

Rodrigo brings her cross-stitching skills to the streets of Spain, from cities like Madrid to Valencia. She begins each artwork with the installation of a nearly transparent wire mesh in front of a building facade. The wire mesh serves as the base for the colored rope. Rodrigo is most well known for her macro embroidery of traditional red roses .

Her roses, for instance, are created with various shades of reds and greens for a sense of depth and realism. Rodrigo has also created large-scale cross-stitch street art featuring other flowers such as cherry blossoms and hibiscus flowers. + Arquicostura Via This is Colossal Images via Arquicostura

You don’t want to get caught vandalizing graffiti in Utah, especially if it happens to be by British street artist Banksy .

Comments Off on Gorgeous Swing Bin May Be the World’s Most Elegant Trash Can

Shigeichiro Takeuchi created Swing Bin , a sculptural piece of art that looks almost too beautiful for its actual role as a trash can . The deceptively simple design follows a minimalist aesthetic and consists of just two pieces: a cylinder with a diagonal cut and a wooden oval so precisely carved that the Swing Bin opens and closes without the need for screws, gears, or wires. Available in white or black, the elegant Swing Bin is currently seeking $65,000 in Kickstarter funds by September 14 and is already over a third of the way there. + Swing Bin Kickstarter The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Make Your Own Eco-Conscious Graffiti with Mud Stencils

Contrary to popular believe, graffiti doesn’t have to be ugly or offensive —it can be thought-provoking, challenging, and perhaps most importantly, temporary. Jesse Graves , an artist based in Milwaukee Wisconsin, has harnessed mud as an artistic medium to take his green graffiti to the streets, and he encourages others to do the same. Making mud graffiti stencils is fun and easy, and since the designs will wash away during the next rain shower, you can beautify your neighborhood without worrying that you’ll get in trouble for doing so.
