Graffiti on a Stick

Whether its yarn bombing or ceramic heads, Melbourne poles are being beautified and allot more interesting with these group of graffiti artists using the humble pole as their canvas. Yarn bombing is gaining popularity, originating in New Jersey, it is quickly spreading due to its accessibility and its softer feel to traditional graffiti. Yarn bombing employs colorful knitted or crocheted yarn or other materials in an attempt to reclaim and personalise sterile or cold public places. This post will follow the growth and popularity of this stream of graffiti. Also, anyone know why is doing this great work so i can give them credit?
