One my my favorite instagram discoveries is the Irish artist Threadstories. She crochets these balaclavas and then adorns them, such that they become personalities. Sometimes the gesture changes, sometimes the mask has movement, sometimes nearly the entire model is obscured. She doesn’t have a website that I can find, but you can read more about her work on Hi Fructose or Thisiscolossal.com.
I hope you will follow her. You won’t be disappointed.
