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.
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.
