Hungarian Artist Creates Crochets of Famous People

Katerina Penzina is a Hungarian contemporary artist best-known for her crochet portraits. The self-taught artist’s journey began back in 2014 when she started using hooks and yarn. During this time, she has created hundreds of colorful pieces ranging in sizes between 20 by 20 centimeters and 1 by 1 meter.

“I’m set on making full use of yarn’s texture and bright colors to create three-dimensional, saturated pieces, in which the image itself harmonizes and resonates with its physical form as well as with my artistic technique and vision,” the artist shared on Bored Panda.

She added that she is interested in themes of ties, spread out across time and space, both physical and virtual. “Ties apply in relationships between humans, between an image and the audience, between an artist and their inner world. In the world of my art, everything and everyone is connected, and true isolation and alienation are non-existent.”

Alongside her Instagram account, Penzina also owns a YouTube channel where she shares step-by-step tutorials for those interested in her ‘paintings’.
