Gallery: Massive Crocheted Alligator Playground Pops Up in São Paulo!

 
Olek's work is currently on display at the Smithsonian's "40 Under 40: Craft Futures" exhibit, and one of her crocheted bikes makes a cameo in the movie 2 Days in New York.

With the help of a team of “crocheteiros,” Olek completely covered the massive alligator in colorful yarn and ribbons. Kids can climb in, through and on top of the brightly-colored alligator, which loses some of its intimidation with that blanket of pink yarn. The crocheted alligator is part of the SESC Arts Show 2012, a non-profit arts show across several venues that runs from July 19 to 29 in São Paulo.

The Polish-born artist has been quite prolific recently, covering everything from a convertible to the bull on Wall Street in bright-colored yarn. Olek’s work is currently on display at the Smithsonian’s “40 Under 40: Craft Futures” exhibit, and one of her crocheted bikes makes a cameo in the movie 2 Days in New York.
