Any surface is fair game for Polish street artist, Nespoon. She takes traditional lace patterns and turns them into large-scale murals, stencils, ceramic installations, and even embroidery. And she places them everywhere. One can see pieces from around the world in places like Perth, Tunisia, and Portugal and they decorate walls, tree trunks, even driftwood on the beach. The works are part of her ongoing series called “public jewelry” which seeks to turn unadorned spaces and surfaces into something beautiful.
According to Nespoon, she chose to work with laces because in it there is an aesthetic code, deeply embedded in every culture. In the design, there is symmetry, order, and harmony. It’s something we all seek for instinctively. [h/t thisiscolossal.com]
