The images below show the incredibly clever and rarely subtle work of French street artist oakoak. The artist is somehow able to exploit every little crack or dent in his home town of St. Etienne and turn it into a piece of art. He tells Bulkka:
Since I come from Saint Etienne, an old industrial city which is now in reconversion, I have the need to make my city less “grey” and at the same time, funnier. Humor is really important to me. It’s definitely the most important element in what I do.
My main interest is giving importance to places and objects that people don’t notice anymore. I walk a lot every day and that’s how I get to find new attractive places with urban elements such as broken walls for example. When I see something interesting during my walks, I measure it and study it, and I come back later to make the collage. I prefer to prepare the drawings and drafts at home.
