Graffiti Is Over, Jonathan LeVine
I actually think that whilst I am over graffiti for the most part, it seems to be more plentiful than proper “street art.” I wish that weren’t the case. Anyone can piss on a wall.
Now that I got that out of the way, don’t you love seeing gallery owner Jonathan LeVine immortalized as street art on the right?

"The Bad Artists Imitate, The Great Artists Steal" By Olek. Now showing at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC through August 27, 2011
The goddess of crochet is back! When we last wrote about Olek, she had just completed an exhibit where she crocheted over the contents of an entire studio apartment. The exhibit was such a success that it’ll be featured at the Smithsonian next year in a travelling show! Olek’s latest exhibit “The Bad Artists Imitate, The Great Artists Steal” at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery finds Olek exploring new territory. As you walk up 20th street in Manhattan towards the LeVine Gallery, you’ll find street art that Olek has left for art aficionados to admire and for tourists, objects such as a crocheted shopping cart and crocheted cherry picker make for great photo ops!
Crocheted Cherry Picker by Olek
In the top photo, Olek crocheted the contents of a living room as an installation tribute to Keith Haring, where Haring famously camouflaged himself in a black and white room. You’re going to have to see the exhibit in person to experience the full magic that Olek has created. She also pays tribute (or steals from – per the quote that titles the exhibit) to artists such as Louise Bourgeois and Banksy, who once carved the Pablo Picasso quote “The Bad Artists Imitate, The Great Artists Steal” into stone and then crossed out Picasso’s name and put his own in its place.
You should not miss this exhibit under any circumstances! “The Bad Artists Imitate, The Great Artists Steal” by Olek is showing at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery (located at 529 West 20th Street #9E) in Manhattan. The exhibit runs through August 27, 2011.
