Behold Olek’s Crazy, Crocheted Alligator Playground


As huge fans of Olek’s colorful yarn bombs and eye-catching playgrounds, you can only imagine how excited we were to come across Crocheted Jacaré, an incredible new piece that the Poland-born, Brooklyn-based artist just put up in São Paulo, Brazil for the SESC Art Show 2012. Apparently, it took her and a team of “crocheteiros” weeks to cover the entire alligator-shaped playground, which was designed by Márcia Maria Benevento, but based on the results, we think it was time well spent. Don’t you want to go to there?
