While graffiti can be either hideous or sublime -- depending on the artist, context and predisposition of the viewer -- I expect everyone who looks at this week's top ten will agree that it makes for an interesting theme for fabrics. The winner is the inspiring team behind TheBoerWar, Mathew and Mattea den Boer of Toronto. This is the couple's second win (the <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/93"> coffee</a> contest was their first), but if you follow our contests you will certainly have seen and admired their work before today. Congrats! Read more about <a href="http://blog.spoonflower.com/2012/02/graffiti-fabric-contest-winner-congrats-to-theboerwar.html">Graffiti Fabric Contest Winner</a>.
