London Kaye is a street artist based in Los Angeles, California. Her unique use of crochet to create art pieces made entirely of yarn has brought smiles to communities around the world and has allowed London to create a business out of something handmade.
Born in Los Angeles, California, London received her BFA in dance from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. After graduating London realized that her love for crochet, art, being spontaneous, and bring unexpected joy came together harmoniously when she began using crochet to interact with her environment and surrounding community. London began installing art daily on the street, quickly leading to her work being easily recognized by her community's people and businesses.
In 2018 London launched her own line for Lion Brand Yarn creating a line specifically made for indoor and outdoor use. Through her time leading workshops and teaching crochet, London came to realize the best qualities of her favorite hooks and combined them together using 3D printing technology to create a unique new style “Crochet Hook with a Twist”. As London’s career has expanded to collaborating with international brand names such as Red Valentino, Starbucks, Miller Lite, Chex Mix, and The Gap, London has not stopped making art for the streets. Most of her pieces are still hung on fences in public places and has been spotted in cities ranging from New York to Rome and Mexico City.
