Crochet Tricycle Art by Olek
Yarn bombing (guerilla knitting) is a fairly new but very entertaining take on street art. What's not to love? It's not permanent, it doesn't leave any marks or trash behind, and it looks great! NYC's most famous yarn graffiti artist is Olek and seeing (what I'm fairly sure was) one of her crochet tricycles yesterday in SoHo brought a smile to my face. Olek is known for covering bicycles in her camouflage crochet work but this mini trike is cute also. Several months ago she made her biggest hit by covering the Wall Street Bull in yarn (google it, you'll see) and we hope to continue seeing her work around the city.
