Textile artist Olek has covered an entire locomotive with colourful crochet in her home country. The Polish-born artist created the panels in New York after being inspired by a train ride from New York to San Francisco and along with her four assistants, spent two full days in Łódź, Poland, to cover a Px48 steam locomotive and carriages in crochet. She hopes to provoke change with her art.
