A selection of some of the outstanding Street Art I have seen in Berlin over the last few weeks.
Where I have dedicated a post to an artist I have added a link to their name so just click through to see more. I have also added links to a number of the artists’ own websites.
Seeing Fin DAC painting at Stroke Urban Art Fair has to be one of my Street Art highlights of the year so when I found out he also painted a piece at YAAM while he was in Berlin I had to go and see it.
INTI is another artist who was showing at the Stroke Urban Art Fair and it was a lucky coincidence that I saw this piece at YAAM as it was just yards form the Fin DAC piece shown above.
A big ‘Thank You’ to @jeroenvanmarle who let me know about these two street sign interventions that I think are by CLET. Both designs have appeared on his own Facebook page so I assume they are originals. It seems to me that either a lot of people are using this style now or CLET must be a very busy man.
As always, if anyone knows who the artists are please let me know in the comments so that I can give the proper credit.
Photos of the work have been appearing on Instagram and Twitter with a deserved positive reaction (except from the authorities).
I’m not sure if CLET has been in Berlin for some time now, if he was very busy a while back and I’m only now noticing the fruits of his labour, or if someone else has taken up the mantle of creating puns from street signs. Whichever it is, I for one love coming across these altered signs.
As before, some of the images may be familiar to anyone who follows me on Facebook or Twitter.
I posted photos of a couple of the CLET street sign interventions I have seen in Berlin recently on my Facebook page and they were well received so I thought I’d write a post about the artist.
CLET (Clet Abraham) is based in Florence but comes originally from Brittany. He is most well known for his subtle art, which involves the manipulation of a street sign. For me, this is Street Art at its best. It is clever and witty and encourages people to pay more attention to their surroundings. Perhaps most important of all, it brings a smile to the faces of those lucky enough to see it.
