Knitted Pictures

I ran across these amazing pieces on The Guardian, and was so impressed by the talent of the group, The Materialistics. Starting with a Coat for a Boat last year,coat for a boat they scaled down a bit and knit copies of some famous paintings.

A very timely image, Hokusai: The Great Wave, with the original here, Kanagawa and the knitted copy here.Hokusais-The-Great-Wave-002

Edvard Munch’s The Scream:Munch-s-The-Scream-008 Van Gogh’s Sunflowers:Knitted-art-001 As a some-time knitter, I really appreciate the effort that went into these works!
