Video | PBS Arts Off Book piece on Swoon and Olek

PBS Arts Off Book blog, recently produced a video documenting two of our favorite female street artists; Olek and Swoon.

The street is a space where art thrives, and a place where artists can shape the public aesthetic. Olek, a sculptor whose medium is crochet, and Swoon, a mixed media artist, disrupt daily life with work that creates wonder, emotion, and humor. Equally at home in museums and galleries, both artists also create installations that challenge the formats of traditional art spaces. With powerful layers of meaning, beautiful aesthetics, and using unique media, these two prolific creators are pushing the boundaries of contemporary art.

Watch the video after the jump.
