NeSpoon

Warsaw-based artist Elżbieta Dymna who goes by the name NeSpoon has gained global recognition for her beautifully delicate lace art murals.  Her lace motifs cover the walls, streets, and public parks found in urban environments.  By using intricate doily patterns, the artist beautifies abandoned and unadorned spaces in unlikely urban jungles, transforming them into stunning works of art.  

Why laces? Because in laces there is an aesthetic code, which is deeply embedded in every culture. In every lace we find symmetry, some kind of order and harmony, isn’t that what we all seek for instinctively? 

Why street art? “Because it gives freedom.” 

You can follow the artist on Behance, Facebook and Instagram.
