Yarn Graffiti

Geometric lettering by Hottea

Street artist Hot Tea wanted to make a creative impact with non-destructive materials, so he began using yarn, and then nails, suction cups, and stencils. His outdoor art is related with how things interconnect, and it can be associated to his alias: “‘Hot’ and ‘Tea’ are two totally different words, which brought together represent something new.” [1] And this is how he goes about combining a material to something existent in the city, like a fence, a bridge rail, and more.
