The Best of Cross-stitched Street Art

At the first instance, you might think that they are simple paintings on walls or fences. However, if you take a close look, you will soon be able to discover the cross-stitched patterns, which are entirely free from smelly spray paint. Folded paper origami, crochet, and lace-making have already been successfully displayed on the streets. Now it’s the time to adorn the streets with cross-stitch, and some artists have already started moving ahead on this path.

Street Art by Raquel Rodrigo

Raquel Rodrigo is a Spanish artist who is adding charm to the streets of Spain by turning them colorful with her unusual floral cross-stitch patterns. This talented artist, born in Valencia, creates her masterpieces by wrapping wire mesh with thick rolls of string. These are designed in advance which are then unrolled at the designated location for bringing in a unique combination of creativity and color in the surrounding space.

Usually, cross-stitch patterns are present on stuff within the house; hence this public installation of cross-stitch quickly catches the eye, being a great contrast against the urban backgrounds where they are installed.

Raquel is one of those women, who, in the last few years, have increasingly made their appearance in the street art scene. She is weaving colors across the city, taking inspiration from one of the oldest embroidery forms.

Street Art by French duo

These are in fact giant embroidery work over fences. Urban X Stitch, a French street art duo based in Lyon, adorns ordinary chain-link fences by designing colorful and bright characters in cross-stitch patterns. They begin with cross-stitched patterns drawn to scale and then the same is transferred to fences with the help of fabric pieces. These artworks, including different patterns from logos to cute animals, look quite captivating and beautiful.
