    Formallina: Extreme Knitting

Check out Polish creative Formallina's knitted heroes calendar!

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Polish creative Izabela Kaczmarek-Szurek –who works under the enigmatic name Formallina – is a multi-talented woman with a portfolio which includes painting, illustration, art direction, textile design, posters and typography design. But because it’s Friday there was really only one place to start. Her Extreme Knitting calendar is a selection of 12 of her heroes rendered in mighty impressive crochet with the portraits used on some very natty products. Hulk Hogan cushion anyone? George Michael bikini? Then there’s Britney, Bowie, Beckham (Victoria, not David), Joan Collins Kate Moss, John Travolta, Sty Stallone, Princess Diana, Paris Hilton and who I think is former Polish president Lech Wałęsa. The calendar earned her third place in a competition run by GRAFFEX magazine but she’s top of our knitted calendar pops for sure. Well worth checking out the rest of her work too.
