Green grows the graffiti – Moss art.

Posted in Style & Travel

hope-1We love urban art at campari & sofa.  Show us something beautiful created by a hip young thing with a spray can – and we will happily walk past a fancy gallery, grab a coffee and sit on the sidewalk to appreciate it.
moss-10Moss-graffiti had us at Eco. This new street art is replacing spray cans with yoghurt pots and creating green art  where we least expect it.
moss-9One of our favourite green-graffitos, Edina Tokodi, is renowned for her mossy rabbits and birds dotted around New York Streets. Todoki encourages people to interact with her art: to look, touch, feel and smell it, to hear the city living around it. For her art involves all five senses. It’s about one a living breathing organism communicating with another.
moss-003Moss Graffiti was originally created by horticulturists keen to add interest to their garden designs. But it is something that anyone could do at home. Or in a damp, forgotten little corner near you. All you need is a couple of ingredients – the right setting and a little ‘out-there’ inspiration.

As soon as it starts to grow, transplant it in your chosen location and watch your graffiti art spread. If you’re interested in creating a little urban green-ffiti of your own check out Instructables for the how to.

  1. With my science karma I will probably grow some sort of anthrax-producing moss. Best not to test this theory.

  2. Love the work. They just seem to add nature in the most simplest of ways in totally unexpected places. 🙂

  3. Nice environmental graffiti on vertical wall, but I suppose have to be extra careful not to spoil the green nature.
