Yarn artÂ is an art work done using a long continuous length of interlocked fibres. It has been used for many designs in the past and the form of creativity it represents is laudable. Crazy world we live inâ€¦people have a way of bringing p*rn into everything. What could have just been appreciated as a creative work is causing a controversy at an Art shop in New York.
Out of the plethora ofÂ yarn artÂ created by artist, Erik Ravelo displayed at the Art of Knit, Bennettonâ€™s fall/winter pop-up shop is one called Lana Sutra that depicts a couple mid-s*x position amidst the racks of brightly coloured sweaters, pants, and tees.
In fairness to the artist, itâ€™s an ingenious piece that steals attention but understandably, some parents are mad about it. A parent says, â€śI choose to remain vigilant in protecting & preserving my childrenâ€™s innocence. They have a right to it and Iâ€™m not letting this corrupt society dictate it!â€ť
Other parents believe the work of art isnâ€™t bad for their kids. â€śIt certainly is a confronting image, but I believe our children see things just as confronting on music videos. Most kids wonâ€™t even realize what they are seeing when they see this display. And if they do, itâ€™s probably time to teach them a little bit about the facts of life.â€ť
