Artist Beautifies Public Spaces with Ornate Lace Patterns

Warsaw-based artist NeSpoon adds a delicate touch to public spaces with her intricately designed lace patterns. The Polish artist, who is no stranger to working with actual lace, has expanded her portfolio of work to include ornate designs resembling the detailed thread work across urban and natural landscape. Her elegantly adorned designs beautify a variety of worn and weathered structures, from crumbling architecture and cracked pavements to rotting tree trunks and mossy blocks of concrete.

NeSpoon, who prefers to call herself an outdoor artist rather than a street artist (due to the all-inclusive range of locations she has chosen to display her work in), presents her works in a wide variety of mediums. Despite having a central lace motif, the artist exhibits her decorative designs as stenciled graffiti art, ceramics, concrete sculptures, in addition to physical thread installations that include macram. Her embellished patterns, which reference the man-made art of lacework, are integrated into both nature and urban environments, intending to add character and a sense of delicate beauty to all.
