Yarn Bombing – Spidertag in Porto

Yarn Bombing   Spidertag in Porto

Spanish urban artist Spidertag who is quite well-known in Europe for his yarn bombing artworks (he calls them spider tags) just spent the last days in abandoned buildings in Porto, Portugal and of course created some new stuff using nothing more than a few nails, a hammer and some yarn!

It’s all about nails, yarn, geometry, abstraction and streets. (Spidertag)

Spidertag got quite popular in Berlin, when he visited the city for several weeks back in 2011. Among other things he created together with yarn artists Moneyless and Hottea that one spot for a well-known sports equipment manufacturer…

Yarn Bombing, also known as guerrilla knitting, urban knitting or graffiti knitting, impresses with its mixture of simplicity and abstractness. The initial idea was to reclaim and personalize those often sterile, cold and cold public places. Nowadays there’s a more or less big movement of yarn bombers around the globe!
