Textile graffiti is a form of public art linked to the recent resurgence in textile crafts. Textile graffiti includes interventions such as yarn bombing in which artists install knit or crochet works into the urban landscape. Such installations may have a variety of implications from highlighting urban blight to providing insight on the historically masculine nature of urban planning.
