A Street Artist Who Wants To Cover The World In Crochet

Meet Agata Oleksiak (aka OLEK), a "New York-based Polish artist" who's the world's first crochet street artist. Her works have been seen all over New York and London, and she's bringing a bit of crocheted color to the world with her psychedelic yarn works and twisted gimp-esque crocheted bodysuits.

Head to the link to see some of her awesome guerilla artworks, from a crocheted car to the Wall Street Bull and some seriously twisted yarn covered rooms in-between. Olek seems hell bent on making the world a warmer place, one bright pink skein at a time.

Seems a little creepy to me. I'm OK with the crocheted street art in principle, but when I see the artist covers their own body in it, I can't help but think this is more of a fetish than a hobby. And therefore, the street art is their attempt to act out their fetish in public, which is just creepy.
