Sunday Inspiration: Pierre le Riche

We came across this South African artist’s work last week and think this installation work of his is just beautiful.

The Rainbow RoomThe work is called ‘The Rainbow Room’ and is a marriage of yarn bombing and installation art. We love the amazing contrast between the white objects and the brightly coloured yarn (17 km of it!).

Pierre knitted covers for over 150 rugby balls in the colours of the gay pride flag as his works is a playful but critical look at Afrikaner masculinity and homosexuality. Visi magazine published an interesting interview with him for those of you who would like to read more.
