What do you get when you give street art a cozy knit twist? That would be yarn bombing, aka yarnstorming, graffiti knitting, or grandma graffiti. Found here and there around the globe in the most random places, this knitted graffiti art softens the most urban of concrete jungles and just makes everything cozier. First spotted in the Netherlands, the idea has since spread across the globe, as witnessed in the following striking images.

Rachel Denny works in a variety of materials, including wood, plaster, resin, wool, and found objects, to create her animal-inspired pieces. Her well-known “Domestic Trophies” feature elegant deer heads encased in soft skins of knitted cashmere.

“A deer in an urban backyard, a family of Peregrine falcons at my neighborhood park, a coyote skirting a parking lot, these all become a moment of wonder as they shake us out of our daily routines.”
—Rachel Denny

This installation, titled “cabinet” by Misha Kahn caught my eye straight off. Maybe it’s the concept of everything having its own cubby, or its own specific place in the big scheme of things, but something about it just feels so darn reassuring. It’s extremely visually pleasing from a designer’s standpoint as well, with perfectly customized containers for everything.
