Yarn Bombing by London Kaye

Yarn Bombing is a temporary form of street art that uses yarn instead of paint to transform everyday spaces (inside and outside) in a colorful unexpected way using all colors, textures of yarn and crochet pieces of various shapes.

They can be found wrapped around trees, on fences, on bicycles, chairs, tables, and so much more.  If you are familiar with Lion Brand yarn, you can easily see the various types of yarn that she used to create the lion.  The mane was made using the Lion Brand Fun Fur Yarn in two colors.  I love her use of textures to create these cool pieces.

  I had a chance to speak to a street artist called London, at a trade show.

She specializes in making colorful wall art using a variety of textures and colors.

The photo above shows one of the finished pieces she was working on at the Lion Brand Yarn Booth.

The video below was shot at the Winter CHA 2016 Show

where Street Artist London Kaye explains her process in doing street art and how she covered these fences with various crochet pieces over a period of three days.  

The work was sponsored by Lion Brand Yarn.

Disclaimer:  I do not work for Lion Brand nor do I personally know London.  I shot this video at the CHA and wanted to share with those who love seeing different ways that people express themselves creatively through street art.  Also I do not advice yarn bombing private property, it is always best to get permission to avoid legal complications.
