Knitting graffiti, Stockholm. Image held here

You may never find your grandmother wearing a hoodie armed with a can of Krylon on the streets. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take cues from her for the latest in street art.

Alternative methods of graffiti that involve knitting, cleaning and gardening are questioning the definition of graffiti – and taking it to the next level. Instead of defacing, these methods enhance or reface public space. They’re providing new ways to make statements in public, whether for ads, social commentary, or art.
