This Miriam Londono artwork takes a very different approach to graffiti than the traditional street artist. Utilizing paper as her medium, Londono layers cut-outs of different words on top of each other to create textile-like pieces. Her work is detailed and intricate, and even though each piece is complex, it's clear that every aspect of her work is thoroughly thought out.

Miriam Londono is very experienced with using paper as a part of her work, as she has made paper sculptures and paper installations. Through all of her experimentation with paper she has developed "a personal technique to write and draw paper as if it were ink." Londono explains that she is inspired by writing and textiles, and the continuous interlacing of words together creates something of a linguistic textile.
