Word on the street: ‘The End is Far’

To say that Polish artist, Olek loves to crochet would be a gross understatement. Her whole world is crochet. Literally. From text messages to bicycles to neighbours Olek’s colourful recreations are endless. She even gave Wall Street’s ‘Charging Bull’ a woolly crocheted blanket at Christmas 2010. So yes she may be slightly insane and clearly has A LOT of spare time, but there’s something very appealing about her bright eccentricity.

Her solo exhibition ‘The End is Far’ is currently on at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York until 23rd March and displays a variety of crocheted sculptures, an installation room and crochet-covered female performers. So if you’re taking a trip to the Big Apple this Spring it’s definitely worth stopping by, if only to experience what it would be like to live in a world of wool. Head over to the gallery’s website for more info:

Crocheting just became cool.
