Olek, born Agata Oleksiak, is an artist who bases her practice on covering people and objects in snug crocheted cozies; as the artist puts it, "my madness becomes crochet." She has used her craft to re-create popular imagery and well-known art in the form of installations and performances, including works by Banksy and Annie Leibovitz's 1986 portrait of Keith Haring. She often includes text in her works, like medical reports, text messages, and famously provocative quotes by Marilyn Monroe and Madonna. Olek's work is commonly spotted around New York, where she has covered cars, chained bicycles, Bernard Rosenthal's Astor Place Cube, and Wall Street's charging bull statue. While her characteristic crochet motif is a camouflage pattern in fluorescent colors, recently her works have tended towards grayscale. Olek also wears her own crocheted creations. Polish, b. 1978, Poland, based in New York, New York
