Olek Posts Bail; New Exhibit Coming to Krause Gallery
Last November, we were surprised to see an Olek yarn-cart hoisted above the entrance of the Krause Gallery at 149 Orchard Street. This particular crocheted wonder had previously resided curbside, conspicuously chained to a nearby signpost. But the mysterious placement was definitely no accident; there was an ulterior motive. One that involves the rather unlikely return of the Polish-born artist to the Lower East Side.

Thanks to an email blast from the Krause Gallery, we learn today that Olek is now free on bail from the mysterious incident that transpired in London shortly before the holiday season. She and artist David E. Peterson will present a collaborative show called “Synthetic Nature” on March 15.
Krause Gallery is proud to announce “Synthetic Nature” Olek with David E. Peterson.
Infamous street artist OLEK recently freed on bail in London will be performing at the Krause Gallery reception within her exhibition. Details to be released ONLY at the exhibition! With an installation by David E Peterson, Synthetic Nature will create the origin of how Olek will re-create the world in crochet.
“Synthetic Nature” will run through April 15.
