Recently Lindsey blogged about a video of artist Olek covering the famous Wall Street bull sculpture with a crocheted cozy. Catching the eye of the culture blog Flavorwire, her work inspired the blog to post an artist round-up: 10 Artists Who Use Yarn As Their Medium.
This interesting blog post includes Tatyana Yanishevsky (whose work can currently be seen at the Brooklyn Art Museum in NYC), Magda Sayeg of Knitta Please (whose work we’ve blogged about previously here and here), and Dave Cole (whose giant knitted pieces have been featured in such exhibits as Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting). Click the title of the article above to learn more about these 10 artists and their work.
With fiber art garnering more and more attention, it will be interesting to see what 2011 brings! Do you have a favorite fiber artist? Leave us a comment and tell us about him/her!
