I've posted bits about Magda Sayeg before on various outlets of the Internet. I think it's safe to say her work has grown into a little obsession of mine. Some of you may have seen her work at the new Standard Hotel in NYC. She gracefully combines the granny craft of knitting with street art (wow!). The term "tagging" usually doesn't mean embellishing a surface in an aesthetically pleasing manner, and graffiti has a very masculine tone. Ms. Sayeg seems to counter act several connotations city by city around the world. I've been "stalking" Knitta Please's URL for the new site to appear, and finally my efforts have paid off. She is one über talented artist, and hopefully I can volunteer to be one of her guerrilla taggers. Check out her scarves too!
