Astor Place Cube gets Yarn Bombed by Street Artist Olek

By - Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Run by Astor Place to check out some prime time yarn bombing by street artist Olek, but don’t say that to her face—the New York Times quoted her saying “I don’t yarn bomb, I make art,” and ““If someone calls my [work] a yarn bomb, I get really upset.” Also don’t mistake her work for knitting. All of her pieces are crocheted, and as she was overheard saying at the cube “knitting is for pussies”which was also the title of her recent show at Christopher Henry Gallery in Nolita. More of Olek’s work will be featured in the Smithsonian’s “40 Under 40” exhibition in 2012. Text and Photo: Caylee
