As we have seen in the past, Warsaw-based artist NeSpoon covers gritty urban spots with intricate lace patterns that generate a touch of elegance in unexpected places. The artist uses traditional, ornamental lace as the foundation for her street art that takes the form of both spray painted murals as well as hand-cut stencils strung up like spider webs.
The Polish artist creates direct interactions between the decorative designs and the surrounding space like walls, sidewalks, and lamp posts. Across the years, her public art has covered abandoned houses, parking meters, utility boxes, doorways, and street signs in various cities throughout the world as a way to beautify urban spaces.
The artist refers to her art as “public jewelry,” explaining: “Jewelry makes people look pretty, my public jewelry has the same goal, make public places look better. I would like people who discover, here and there, my small applications, to smile and just simply feel better.”
