Street Is My Canvas

Yarn as public art has become a global phenomenon. Whether it's yarn bombing a tree trunk by wrapping it in yarn or an entire installation, yarn can be simply a dash of much-needed brightness on a drab street or an amazing color sensation! I came across an article recently (original article found here) about a Brazilian studio Dolorez crochez. Inspired by music, she raises yarn to an art form and calls her project "street is my canvas."

Crochet + Graffiti: I Cover Sao Paulo’s Streets In Yarn

Street is my canvas, yarn is my ink: that’s when I express myself inspired by some thoughts, songs, feelings and everything that is inside my world. From my hands to the streets.

My inspiration comes from music, feelings, poetry and also guerilla arts, politics opinion, etc.


“Sea, half of my soul is made by ocean breath” (Inspired by Sophia Andresen poetry) Made in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.


“Where does your fear hurts?” (Inspired by Alessandra Leão song) “People was passing by the street where the heart was installed, taking pictures, tagging me at social media and answering the question. It was a really cool way to get answers and to know that my work is teasing and poking something very deep. This is the best reward.”
