There’s something going on in the streets of Europe lately. Street signs are taking on a life of their own in the name of art and humour, and the man responsible is having the laugh of a lifetime as he does it. Clet Abraham is a French painter and sculptor who has become a street artist quite late in life. Though not strictly a ‘street artist’ - he’s exhibited his work in galleries across Europe for a number of years - Abraham’s work has lately spilled into the streets, with fantastic results. One thing’s for sure - Clet Abraham street sign art is getting seen, and generating some smiles out there. Clet’s street art is simple but with a humorous twist - he changes street signs with a quick vinyl cut sticker. In one quick move, signs take on a whole new meaning - though he doesn’t alter them so drastically that you couldn’t understand their original instruction. He must be a really frequent traveler too - over the last six months, his work has popped up everywhere from London to Paris to Rome and beyond. With his works added to the mix, there’s a lot for street art lovers to look out for - between the massive murals of the Etam Cru, to the wild exploded visions of The Weird Crew and on to more permanent work like that of Space Invader, things are looking up in the alleyways and side streets of old Europe! So far it doesn’t seem to be doing his artistic career any harm either - he’s being featured across dozens of sites and blogs for his interventionist street art work, which has only helped his exposure in the mainstream art world. As far as clever marketing moves go, this is a surefire winner - you only need to consider the way in which Banksy and Basquiat before him saw their careers launched by taking their work to the streets. If you’re in Europe, keep your eyes peeled as you walk around - chances are good that you’ll spot one of Clet’s pieces.
