The woven street art created by the artist Raquel Rodrigo offers a whimsical divergence from the paintings and graffiti that is usually used to decorate public property.

The decorative street murals cover the suburbs surrounding Madrid, Spain and add a quirky charm to the buildings they are featured on. Raquel Rodrigo weaves various artistic images onto grates or netting using rope and string and the resulting artwork looks like pixelated images that are then propped up against walls and archways. The artist has created a variety of different pieces, all of which feature floral elements in a different colors.

This woven street art is refreshing in its reinterpretation of public murals, offering a perspective that is unique to this artist alone.
