I Heart Street Art

Following on from my last post about installations, I am all about the perpetration of very cool street art. Whether it's stencil art or graffiti from the Wooster Collective, or just generally interesting installations, I always try and photograph images before they're painted over or taken down.

But I am very excited by CutUp. Here, vigilante paper artists take down billboard posters, cut them up and then re-paste them up in new images. They look incredible! (And what's not to love about the crafty use of 'vigilante'?)

But some of my favourites have to be the knit-fiti or craft bombing started by Chicago-based Knitta. Ahh, I really need to learn to knit. This would be so much fun.

Anyone interested in some crafty vigilante fun?
