Crochet artist Olek has covered the façades of two houses in a pink yarn-bombed art installation.

In Kerala, Finland and in Avesta, Sweden, the artist used her typical material to canvas the entire exterior of two homes in woven neon pink fabric.

‘We live in challenging times, a changing world filled with conflict, wars, and natural disasters,’ Olek said about the artwork’s inspiration, ‘but I like to think that it’s also a world filled with love.’

In collaboration with Syrian and Ukrainian refugees, Olek covered ‘our pink house’ in an intricate lacework featuring ornate floral patterns and geometric motifs.

Standing as a symbol of a bright future, the two yarn-works wrap the roof, walls, doors and even chimneys of the architectural structures. Olek wants the installation to entwine themes of community, home and hope for those without a physical house to call their own.

‘Our pink house is about the journey, not just about the artwork itself,’ Olek says. ‘it’s about us coming together as a community. It’s about helping each other. In the small Swedish community of Avesta, we proved that we are stronger together, that we can make anything happen together. People from all walks of life came together to make this project possible. Someone donated the house, another one fixed the electricity and red heart yarns donated the materials. And of course, most importantly, many women joined us in the effort to make my dream a reality.’

We applaud this type of awareness that makes us as all think that we can do more good together than divided. Neon pink for every house we say.
