PopUp Painting’s ‘artist of the week’ is street artist Olek.
Olek is a Polish born, New York based street artist who is known for her crocheted interventions of public spaces.
The artist combines punk zeal, pop imagery and political messages in her pieces.
Olek herself comments that through her work she wants to ‘bring color and life, energy, and surprise to the living space’.
You can check out more of the artist’s work here. And if you fancy yourself as a street artist keep an eye out on our events calendar for our special street art events.
We will be featuring Olek’s work all week on our Facebook and Twitter pages, but in the meantime here is a selection of our favourite works by the artist:
