The Great Artists Steal
Gallery II
Solo Exhibition

Olek is having a crochet exhibit, August 10, 2011 through August 27, 2011 at the Johathan Levine Gallery located 529 West 20th Street, 9th Floor New York, NY 10011. It is open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., 212-243-3822.

The Jonathan LeVine Gallery is presenting new work by  New York-based artist Olek, in  her first solo exhibition at the gallery. The exhibit features a site-specific installation of crochet sculptures and canvases. The exhibit title comes from  a work created by Bansky a world-renowned British street artist. He carved a quote by Pablo Picasso into stone and crossed out the late artist’s name and added his own.

Olek has yarnbombed people and objects with crochet—including Wall Street’s Charging Bull sculpture. Agata Oleksiak was born in Poland in 1978.
