Juliana Santacruz Herrera, a group of Argentine artists from the city of Rosario, are continuing the tradition of replacing broken or missing tiles in their neighborhoods with handmade and hand-painted tiles of their own, beautifying their shared spaces in the process.
Yarn seems to have become the hippest material in street art lately. Recently we reported on Juliana Santacruz Herrera, who fills potholes with yarn in a most decorative way. Now check out the works of Strickbombe (‘Yarn bombing’), an anonymous woman knitting in Saarbrücken, Germany.
We recently covered the efforts of Juliana Santacruz Herrera to cover the tiny cracks of the world with esquisite yarn creations. OaKoAk has been doing the same thing for years, hanging all manner of cartoony characters from the slithers of imprefection that most of us never even notice.
Who doesn’t know them? The cracks in the roads that make driving and walking way less comfortable? Juliana Santacruz Herrera has had the funny idea to turn these unwelcome side effects of ‘nature at play’ into something more pleasant by filling the gaps with bright and colorful strands of yarn. Juliana currently fills potholes in Paris. Although her work might not be for eternity, it surely inspires some Parisian passers by to smile.
