Olek’s tribute to Banksy. Lower East Side, New York City.

A nod to Banksy from one of my favorite street artists - Olek. Olek talked about this particular work on her website:

"After crocheting the first readymade, I decided to pay homage to Marcel Duchamp and so I crocheted the bike wheel on the stool. Recently, I was referred to as a street artist by the press and public. I wanted to pay my respect to one of the most iconic figures of the street art movement. I am placing a series of The girl with the balloons image coinciding with the Oscars as support for Banksy’s movie. What is authentic? Did he intend to do a mockery of the art world by being a Mr. BW?"  Agata Olek
