Crochet Quote: Olek On Art

Today’s crochet quote is by crochet artist Olek whose latest exhibit ends tomorrow. The quote source is a news article about that exhibit.

“I hope art in general can inspire and initiate change. I use street art as an additional viewing space, like a gallery or any other area that is showing my work. Good public art works make a person stop walking, stop staring at the ground, and focus on art. My work is never finished – the continuous response of the viewers is the art. My work is simply an instrument for their expressions. It proves that all things are interconnected.”

Thoughts? Does this change your mind about yarnbombing and / or public art in any way?
