Olek’s Final Tribute to Montreal

Street artist, Olek, yarn bombs the River-God at the base of John Young’s monument.  It’s also the first time she has ever left her mark on a fountain.  “It’s a new identity,” Olek said. “For instance, the fountain doesn’t look like a fountain anymore … When you put pink camouflage on it, people start paying attention to it and taking pictures. It’s transforming the identity of an object.”
