349. Upfest 2016 (8)

In the Upfest brochure…yes there was a brochure…there is an entry for ArquiCostura, but I think it may have been translated directly from her website using Google translate, and it is a little peculiar. I think it attempts to say that her work builds up pictures from the pixel size upwards, which I guess is how cross-stitch kind of works anyhow. Her work in the Steam Crane pub is absolutely wonderful, and set subtly at the back of the yard.

I believe from reading her Facebook page that she did another piece in Raleigh Road at the Tobacco Factory, but I don’t recall seeing it. I’ll have to go take another look. It is so refreshing to have needlework represented at Upfest which really does seem to embrace all forms of street art.
