Yarn bombing, also known as guerrilla knitting and ‘kniffiti’ normally involves artists wrapping multicoloured yarn around the barks of trees, but this Mexican artist is taking the art form to the next, more human level.

Victoria Villasana yarn bombs celebrities. Well, not actual celebrities, but iconic images of them.

The result is incredible, colourful pop art you can hang on your walls and keep forever, two factors that traditional yarn bombing would not allow.

The artist also creates her own yarn bomb version of street art by ‘tagging’ her unique style of artwork around various cities worldwide.

From Frida Kahlo to Mohammad Ali, Donald Trump, New York fashion icon, Iris Apfel and even Queen Elizabeth, Victoria takes some of the world’s most famous faces and infuses them with colour, humour and personality using nothing but balls of yarn.
