Inspired by the dainty doily, street artist NeSpoon is known for her delicate designs that adorn—and subsequently spruce up—public spaces around the world.
Like in the past, the Warsaw-based artist and lover-of-lace fashions pieces that mimic the fine fabric’s elaborate patterns and fragile aesthetic. In an email, she tells us: “I create works that are somewhere in between street art, pottery, painting, and sculpture.” She produces an array of works with a range of materials. Using a classic combination of stencils and spray paint, she transforms plain facades and simple walls into canvases covered in whimsical patterns. She also molds site-specific ceramics that dress up everything from a conspicuous crack in the pavement to a tree trunk, as well as large-scale, crocheted installations that liven up dark corners with brilliant geometric spiderwebs.
