Caution Clet Abraham Overhead

A new haul of Clet Abraham traffic sign stickers has appeared overnight on Brick Lane. Clet Abraham is always a favourite on the street art tour with a number of his stickers dating from 2013 surviving.   Clet Abraham’s stickers have appeared on previous visits in many parts of London including Shoreditch (of course), Soho, Putney and even that well known street art hotspot Belgravia.

This set of 8 stickers were all spotted close to the location of Moniker Art Fair, the urban art satellite fair taking place this weekend as part of London’s art week. I have seen only one of this set before in London, it’s always a delight to find a new clutch from this talented street artist.

Clet Abraham has work on the Graffik Gallery stand at Moniker Art Fair, details of which were mentioned in a blog post a couple of days ago.

Graffik Gallery have announced today what they curiously describe as an official party to take place at Graffik’s premises in Portobello Road on Saturday 17th October, 7pm – 11pm. No prizes for guessing where Clet Abraham might be this evening adding his humorous intervention to traffic signs.

Clet Abraham Street Art Stickers in Putney, London

An trip to Putney on the banks of the River Thames in West London highlighted how far and wide Italian street artist Clet Abraham has scattered his wonderful road sign subversions.

We reported last year on the fruit of Clet Abraham’s visit to Shoreditch and the City district here.

Apart from sighting the rich crop deposited around Shoreditch last November, we have seen Clet Abrahams stickers on signs from The City to Oxford St and Soho to Sloane Square.

At last, another thing to smile at in Putney apart from Chelsea tractors caught by a rising tide on the river bank.

Street Art Subversions In Shoreditch

On the Shoreditch Street Art Tour we come across many artists whose work is guided and inspired by the street canvas they are decorating.

Clet Abraham is a Florence based French artist whose trademark artistic intervention is modification of no entry signs.  Clet’s previous London visits left us very familiar with stop sign’s white bars turned into a heavy load being hefted by a silhouetted figure across the street.   Having found photographic evidence of the range of Clet’s other street sign subversions across Europe, it seemed slightly puzzling that in London he had focussed so heavily on that one image.

Clet Abraham, 2013

Thankfully Clet has returned to London and unleashed a huge variety of sign modifications across our junctions.  The London one way labyrinth must be a dream come true for this Italian resident and Clet-spotting has become a great delight for the guests on several street art tours since Friday.
