I love HOT TEA. I love his street art made using yarn alone. I love the way he sees himself as an installation artist even though you might see him as a ‘Yarn Bomber’ – a term he doesn’t believe can be attributed to him as his work takes many hours to complete (apparently the term ‘bombing’ is generally used when doing a quick piece of street art).
What interests me most is his approach to the work. Finding the right materials for the right space;
My overall process at the moment (constantly changing) is finding a location that interests me. From there I do research on materials that can be added to the space without damage. From the decision on which materials to use, I then design the piece based on the materials and the space it is in.
I try to create a piece that fits the space but also satisfies my interest in conceptual art. If imagery is used I want it to be in reaction to the space as well as to things that are on my mind at this time to capture a sense of what may have been going on in my life at that moment. It’s my way of taking snap shots of my life to remember the past and to inform the future
