This Hot Tea Wildlife piece was created by two Minneapolis-based street and graffiti artists. The two created this stunning artwork titled Wildlife using nothing but colorful yarns and stencils. This painstakingly slow process involves winding yarn by hand, color by color, on two wooden stakes. This creates the vivid rainbow background seen here that is ever-so-eye-catching.

Hot Tea then uses a stencil to create the black and white images that depict the main scene of this piece. The duo's practice in traditional graffiti and street art married with the beauty and simplicity of the yarn-based background definitely gives the viewer a unique perspective.
