Here's one of her car installs too (not actually done on a car, as I apparently a mold is used I believe)..
Have you tried emailing her, jb? I'd say that's the most straight forward way of getting something. She def sells her work. She just had a show back in Jan called Knitting if for girl thingys and she accepts commissions too. I've been obsessed with her since the Charging Bull last year and have been in contact off and on since. Just have never gotten around to it and had struggled with coming up with something unique for her to give her artistic treatment to. Thought about a full body jump suite for one of my 4ft Companions, as I don't own a bike..which would make the most sense. But again, I'd say it's as simple as emailing her.
And while this is old news, it's been posted here before somewhere, and most have probably seen it, this video is so badass..
she has c prints and crochet pieces etc as reward for any donations she receives.
WHY do I need your help?Posted on December 8, 2011 Witam!
I have never asked for money as I always managed to make my own way… day by day… loop by loop…
But something horrible happened to me recently and I need your help. I have spoken to my lawyer and obviously I cannot say anything about my defence at the moment other than that I vigorously deny any wrongdoing. Once the trial is over, I will be able to answer your questions.
I had to remove the link to my attorney firm as he got too many emails. For press inquires pls contact me first and I will forward it to him: email@example.com or +447526 100 741
Based on the responses I got after sending msgs I have to say that this IS NOT A SPAM or SCAM.
I am encouraging you to read below.
Here is a statement:
“Olek recently arrived in London in order to fulfill a variety of professional engagements; the first of which was to donate a piece of art work to a charitable organization. On October 6th after donating a piece of her art to the charity at a show in London, Olek was involved in an incident with a drunk and aggressive male who behaved reprehensibly.
The incident happened extremely quickly and not knowing anyone in London or able to access her cell phone for numbers she was swept up into the legal system and treated very poorly. This has resulted in very serious charges being leveled against her which she strenuously denies. She has not even had the chance to state her case before a Court and she must await a statutory timetable before she can present her case properly.
She has now been fortunate enough to be referred on to an appropriate lawyer to defend her against these entirely false allegations, but effective legal representation in cases like this comes at a cost. Today, she needs your help to assist her to get through this terrible and unfair ordeal. At the moment she is facing serious charges with a risk of custody if she is not represented properly and able to expose the untruths and falsehoods in the allegations made against her.”
Can you help?
I am at the moment forced to remain in the UK. My new lawyer was able to assist me to finally change my bail conditions and travel to Poland for two shows. We were also able to get rid of a curfew…. Oh yeah! For over a month I had to stay home between 8pm – 6am each night and wear a plastic tracking bracelet around my ankle. This was of itself beyond comprehension to me. It was clearly in place simply because I am not a British citizen and did not have access to proper representation.
This is all the more worrying if I can’t continue to finance my current lawyers, as without the support that I am now pleading for, there is the risk of an even bigger injustice.
I am still making art, getting ready for a show in Tony’s Gallery in London … but I had to cancel so many events as I am not able to travel…. I do hope it will change soon. The worst is, I cannot do what I love the most: street art. So, if you really like my art, pls help me to get back on my feet and cover this world in crocheted camo pattern.
I tried to apply for emergency grants but I was told I do not qualify. I cannot even use pages like kickstarter to find funds to help me fight this unfortunate incident. That’s why I do really need you!
Once it is over, I can tell stories about how I’ve learned a head stand after being in the cell for 5 days, about people I met behind prison walls… or why I want to come back there to teach how to crochet and give them hope for a better tomorrow.
