Bikes, text messages, objects found in her apartment … there seems to be nothing that artist Olek can’t crochet.

Originally from Poland, Olek (born Agata Oleksiak) now lives in New York where she has taken her obsession with crocheting to a new art form. But don’t mistake her work for just yarn bombing. Her crocheted work can be seen covering everything from people in body suits to even a life-size model of her apartment.
