At first I was enchanted by this quote, especially that last line! But then I got to wondering about that phrase – “crochet is for poor people”.
Thanks to some great detailed photos from Leslie of Crochetbug we can get a sense of how Olek accomplishes color changes in her large scale crochet art installations.
Roundup of some fun crochet art videos featuring Olek, the hottest crochet artist in the industry to date. The first one is a recent one that shows her crocheted balloon work
One of the things I adore about crochet artist Olek is that she doesn’t just weave great visuals with her hook but also weaves great images with her words.
Her signature camouflage crochet has been seen everywhere in New York from the streets to the galleries. Now Olek’s going international with the debut of her first London crochet art show.
I’m adoring this Off Book video on Street Art that shows interviews with two artsts: a mixed media (non-crochet) artist named Swoon that I’d never heard of before and one of my favorite crochet artists, Olek.
Olek is one of my favorite crochet artists and now I’ve got to give her some kudos for her attitude towards some boys that recently vandalized her art.
