This Mickey Mouse Toy was covered in Pink yarn by crochet artist Olek for the Juxtapose Magazine 20th Anniversary group show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City.
Pink Mickey is actually just a small part of a much larger work — a sprawling cat habitat fully covered in crocheted, multi-colored yarn. Check it out below!
Hey NYC Art Lovers, if you are free this evening (Thursday, May 15th) why not pop over to the two Jonathan LeVine Gallery locations (they are just 3 blocks apart!) to have your mind blown at the opening night reception of Art Truancy, the coolest contemporary art group show, maybe ever!
Featuring the works of over 40 artists, Art Truancy celebrates the 20th Anniversary of Juxtapoz Magazine at a revered gallery space that has been around almost as long. Artists whose work you will see in this exhibit include Alex Gross, Alex Pardee, Andrew Schoultz, Brett Amory, Camille Rose Garcia, Chloe Early, Conor Harrington, Doze Green, Faile, Jeremy Fish, Jeff Soto, Marion Peck, Mark Ryden, Maya Hayuk, Miss Van, Neckface, Parra, Pushead, Robert Williams, Saner, Seonna Hong, Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Thomas Campbell, Todd James, Todd Schorr and others. I’m happy to be able to say that I was familiar with the work of so many of these great artists after having been introduced to their work at previous LeVine Gallery shows.
Last night I attended a press preview of the show and will now share with you some of my favorite pieces.
From the 23rd Street Space:
Art by Robert Williams, perhaps most famous for his painting, Appetite for Destruction, which was used as the back cover artwork for the Guns ‘N’ Roses album of the same name.

The Jonathan LeVine Gallery is wrapping up the summer with a simply delightful group show that honors 10 Years of Wooster Collective – a website that helped to introduce Art from the Streets of the World into popular culture.
I don’t think you could drive this anywhere, but it sure looks good in a parking space!
