ishknits asked: Hey,
I just wanted to say thank you for your comments about the NYTimes article about yarnbombing. I have been really turned off to the audacity of Olek's comments about yarnbombing. I understand that she may want to be considered an artist and not a 'crafty graffiti artist', but I feel as though it is very wrong to do that at the expense of others. On a personal note, I have felt the need to annoy her just a little. I realized that she recently provided a wrapped bike to the Renwick 'craft' museum in DC for National Yarnbombing day... I just find the irony overwhelming!! So i left them a yarnbomb myself. Anyway, it feels great to know that I wasn't the only one who noticed! Thanks again.

Yarnbomber

This message made my day! I’m glad to hear you agree with me, and really love your work. I think its really super important to not exclude people from art. Art shouldn’t be intimidating, it should be something that is approachable and inclusive! Keep doing what you do :)

For anyone else reading this, ishknits is referring to my response to this New York Times article. ishknits was featured in this same article.

This project is titled “The Home That Was” and was created by Ben Volta and a team of artists from the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. The purpose is “to create wallpaper patterns that explore consumption, memory, and loss.  Attached to the exterior wall of a neighboring row home, the wallpapers  are installed on the thin plaster remains of a house that no longer  exists.”

Broadway between Stratford and Roscoe. I love that these are done in chalk. It’s perfect.

Three of us are on our way to flower bomb an empty lot with these random packages of wildflowers I’ve been holding onto. Its pretty funny to get all dressed up in black and sneak around just to plant some flowers.

Just received an email from Nuria Mora about her latest “takeover” as she refers to them. This is on a New York City rooftop by the East River. I love her work (and colors!), especially this:
