““Lots of people have aunts or grandmas who paint,” she said. “Do you want to see that work in the galleries? No. The street is an extension of the gallery. Not everyone’s work deserves to be in public.” - olek from a 2011 NY Times article on Yarnbombing.
Does anyone else think it’s interesting that the first thing Olek says is “I like being called street art.” ?
Oh wait…that’s because she’s “worthy” of being called street art.
Also, we really enjoyed Swoon’s work!
