HOTTEA Weaves His Way Through Williamsburg

By - Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

On a his first trip to New York City from his native Minneapolis, HOTTEA strung his signature tags in several locations throughout the area, including Williamsburg. Each of the artist’s pieces were constructed out of yarn on a chain-link fences and other grid-like metal surfaces. Even though these sites force HOTTEA to use straight lines in his work, he does not let these structures limit his creative options. Whether it is through interlocking tags or the addition of three-dimensional elements, the artist is challenging how viewers think of tags as well as yarn bombing. Text and Photo: Rhiannon Platt
