Magda Sayeg – Yarn Bombing (12 Pics)

Die texanische Künstlerin Magda Sayeg ist bekannt als die Mutter des “ Yarn Bombing“ sie macht also „Strick-Streetart“ und das nicht auf kleinem Niveau. Mittlerweile hat sie sich durchaus einen Namen gemacht und mit Firmen wie Absolut Vodka, Madwell oder Mini Cooper und Smart zusammengearbeitet.

 Considered to be the mother of yarn bombing, Magda’s work has evolved to include the knitted/crocheted covered bus in Mexico City, as well as her first solo exhibit in Rome at La Museo des Esposizione in the summer of 2010 . She continues to lead community-based projects and works on commissions around the world with companies such as Absolut Vodka, Madewell, Insight 51, Mini Cooper, and Smart Car as well as participating in shows at Milan’s Triennale Design Museum, Le M.U.R. in Paris, and the National Gallery of Australia, among others. Her installations have also been featured prominently at American monuments to contemporary culture, such as The Standard Hotel, South By Southwest, and the Austin City Limits Festival. Magda has most recently expanded her artwork to encompass new mediums and techniques as with her solo show in Rome which explored the usage of lighting with knitted material. She continues to expand her boundaries by joining integrated media company 1stAveMachine as one of their directors which will serve as a platform for new types of experimentation and collaboration.
