Guerrilla Crochet

As I was strolling down Redchurch Street, Shoreditch, on Saturday with a friend, I came across this crochet covered pushchair attached to a lamppost.
Considering it's Shoreditch, the sight of a multi-coloured crochet pram didn't seem particularly extraordinary or out of place. In fact, most people didn't look twice as they walked past.

The colourful creation was brought to the area by Polish born artist Olek, who has a history of bringing to life mundane objects through crochet. There is even a compact exhibition in Tony's Gallery, E1, covered floor-to-ceiling in miniature vibrant stitches.
