Olek Yarn-Bombed a Botero Cat Sculpture in Barcelona

As if turning the Wall Street Bull into a gaudy purple and pink bovine monster hadn’t been enough of a coup, during a visit to Barcelona in January crochet artist Agata Olek gave a Fernando Botero cat sculpture in the Mediterranean city a similarly kaleidoscopic sweater.

But unlike her infamous crepuscular Christmas morning “Charging Bull” coup, Olek’s wrapping of the Colombian’s sculptor’s corpulent kitty in ski slope camo was done in broad daylight. Barcelona PD, less testy than their NY colleagues, even let Olek pose atop her textile-wrapped tabby.
