I’ve heard about yarn bombing, where knitters and crocheters engage in graffiti-like activities around different cities, covering all kinds of things with yarn. Today, I came across an art gallery that featured works by a crochet artist called Olek. Originally from Poland, she is now based in New York. Stepping into this gallery was like entering a psychedelic landscape where everything was covered with yarn.
Can you see the girl sitting at a table with a telephone? My knitting seems so ordinary in contrast!
Across town, I saw some more unusual art. Have you ever heard of a chewing gum artist? Ben Wilson creates small paintings on old chewing gum. He has several works outside the Royal Academy of Art. Just look down on the sidewalk!
And finally, I saw some more of the Faberge Easter Eggs around town, including a giant gilded chocolate egg in Fortnum and Mason’s window and one call the Fantastic Peter Faun in a bookstore.
