French street artist Alex Trema is in London placing pieces of free art on the streets as part of a project he dubs “Take me”. Today Shoreditch Street Art Tours’ guests came across a piece of Alex’s art packaged up on the streets and they did exactly that, they took it!
Alex conceived his project while in New York in late Spring of 2013 and has placed free art in Paris, Marseille, Napoli, Lille, Milan and now London! The London version consists of an image of the late West London icon Joe Strummer, singer with The Clash.
Alex likes to see the public becoming a part of his project with their participation in photos of them with the art on the streets, so in his terms our guests are officially a piece of art, but they knew that anyway!
