Rodrigo brings her cross-stitching skills to the streets of Spain, from cities like Madrid to Valencia. She begins each artwork with the installation of a nearly transparent wire mesh in front of a building facade. The wire mesh serves as the base for the colored rope. Rodrigo is most well known for her macro embroidery of traditional red roses.

Up close, the cross-stitch artwork is a patchwork of colorful ‘X’-shaped ties that only show its true shape when viewed at a distance. Her roses, for instance, are created with various shades of reds and greens for a sense of depth and realism. Rodrigo has also created large-scale cross-stitch street art featuring other flowers such as cherry blossoms and hibiscus flowers.
