"The Bad Artists Imitate, The Great Artists Steal" ~ Olek

I went to Olek’s new solo exhibition at Jonathan LeVine Gallery yesterday.

“Jonathan LeVine Gallery is proud to present The Bad Artists Imitate, The Great Artists Steal, new works by Polish-born, New York-based artist Olek, in what will be her first solo exhibition at the gallery. The Bad Artists Imitate, The Great Artists Steal features a site-specific installation with a new series of crochet sculptures and canvases. The title of the exhibition refers to a work created by world-renowned British street artist Banksy for his 2009 Bristol Museum show, in which he carved a quote by Pablo Picasso into stone, crossed out the late artist’s name and replaced it with his own.” Read more: http://bit.ly/qxubJL
