NeSpoon is a street artist from Warsaw, Poland. Her artistic focus is on the intricate patterns of lace, and breaking its granny stereotype by using it to beautify gritty urban spaces. NeSpoon calls her artistic approach the “jewellery of the public space”:

Jewellery makes people look pretty, my public jewellery has the same goal, make public places look better.

NeSpoon often uses the usual spray paint and stencils of enlarged lace patterns to produce her works on the street via

Note to self: FoaF is in search of good blackwork/dotwork artists on the East Coast; mine’s by Pat Fish in Santa Barbara so I’m no help. But @fuckyeahblackwork ‘s old links are fairly well attributed, and some of the artists travel out this way.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

I’m back. I’m also going to be trying to use this tumblr in a more traditional way, forwarding and commenting here and there and actually engaging folks. Hopefully without the anxiety of built-up expectations in too much time between posts, I’ll even share my own artwork more often, and remember to tag it as such.
