Yesterday we brought you Christo Guelov, a Bulgarian artist who’s transforming the streets of Madrid with his playful crosswalk designs. Now we’d like to introduce you to Raquel Rodrigo, a Spanish artist and set designer who is also putting her own colorful touch on the Spanish capital by turning its streets into beautiful floral cross-stitch installations.
The Valencia-born artist makes her pieces by wrapping thick rolls of string around wire mesh. She prepares them in advance and then unrolls them at her chosen location to bring a dash of color and creativity to the surrounding area. As cross-stitch patterns are generally found on things inside the home, her public installations create an eye-catching contrast to the urban landscapes in which they exist.
