The streets of Madrid are decorated with bright colors even in winter. And all thanks to the artist, who proved that in the field of street art there is a place for something new. The girl creates her embroidery on a wire mesh, working with thick cords. After the job is ready, it is located on a street in the city.

Flowers are placed on the facades of buildings and cover up the scuffs of old walls. The whole city becomes like handmade crafts. Artworks Raquel made by all the rules of cross-stitch. Only a girl creates her works in fundamentally new forms and materials. Although the artist uses thick ropes instead of thin floss threads, the works look no less elegant than ordinary embroidery. This style is called ArquiCostura, from the combination of the Spanish words “architecture” and “needlework”. This is a fundamentally new look at street art. The graceful works of Raquel contrast with the monumental forms of the city.
