Floral Cross-Stitch Street Art Pops Up in Madrid

I love any type of art that makes you stop and stare. That’s what this floral cross-stitch street art, by set designer and artist Raquel Rodrigo, does for me. How does she make this? Enlarged cross-stitch techniques utilizing thick string is wrapped on wire mesh before it is unrolled and affixed to surfaces. The cross-stitch appears like small pixels. From up close you can’t quite tell what you’re looking at but from far away, you notice the floral designs. Who would have thought to combine cross-stitch with street art? How creative and beautiful.
