With the Olympics in town Deadly Knitshade and I wanted to give London a little bit of craft.
Although I had left a little piece of graffiti on the southbank for the Jubilee, we decided that The London Eye had yet to be given the Knit The City make over. Under the eye’s watchful gaze we set about making a new type of street art, one which has never before been done… as you may know buttons are in my blood – well they have been ever since two decided to lodge their way into my eyes, so we used some of our huge button stash to make a Union Jack.
This was the first time that we encouraged passers by to help us. Everyone was able to take part, although some had to reach up high!
As you may know, normally we leave our art for someone to give a new life to in their home, but as this stretch of the south bank is private property we had very strict security on our backs for the whole day – and I mean every 5 minutes ‘Are you finished yet? What ARE you doing again?’
But, the plus side to that is that we can reuse the buttons for more street art… watch this space!
Have you seen any cool graffiti or street art anywhere? let me know… comment below, I’m always interested to see new works.
