Cross-Stitch Murals on Chain Link Fences

I am a huge fan of street art. It just makes my day when I am walking down a street and come across a beautiful piece drawn by a generous artist on a long forgotten spot. Urban X-Stitch is a project of a French street art duo Vanessa and St├ęphane that happens to induce the similar feeling. They create colorful and fun cross-stitch embroideries with yarn through ordinary fences across city streets. 

The artists begin with a carefully designed regular sized pattern to form their eye-catching characters and scenes that resemble cross-stitch embroidery. Their favorite tool is yarn, instead of using thread they use pieces of fabrics to make their signature art. Imagine coming across one of these on your way to work, I am sure you will be delighted!
