Graffiti Artist Gets Knit

Editorials, Featured Creatives

In 2009 I had the “privilege” of queuing for 5 hours to see Banksy’s take over at Bristol museum. I was really pleased to have been able to see the exhibition but when an underground artist becomes a worldwide household name it leaves us craving fresh underground art.

Enter “The Fastener” who’s real name I shall leave you to try and find out. “The Fastener” tags various locations with knitted graffiti leaving behind random knitted objects and art pieces. Labeled by the artist as “Guerilla knitting” this is a fresh type of artwork that is something to keep a close eye on as well as being inspirational.
