If you love street art, you probably will remember oakoak, France based artist who creates playful and witty interventions on walls, streets, and sidewalks based a keen sense of observation. Smartly taking advantage of cracks and crumbling infrastructure, his creation interact with their surrounds in unexpected ways. When asked why oakoak created these street art, he said “Since I come from Saint Etienne, an old industrial city which is now in re-conversion, I have the need to make my city less “grey” and at the same time, funnier.” Hence he walks a lot every day to find new attractive places with urban elements such as broken walls. Then he measures it, prepare drafts at home then comes back to make the collage. If you like oakoak’s work, you can check our previous post about him or visit his facebook page.
