Oak Oak

about Oakoak

In St. Etienne, an old French industrial town with drab facades and cracked sidewalks ripe, a man walks and pastes his drawings everywhere so as to bring smiles to passers-by where they least expect it. His approach consists of diverting urban elements, playing with mundane flaws, like a crack on a wall. He adds his own vision, his own references that often stem from the geek culture. His art is a means to poeticize the urban environment.

“I wanted it to look nicer. It was an industrial city with many coal mines; now it’s in regeneration and still quite poor. But it’s easily travelled by foot with awkward aspects ideal for art. I saw shapes everywhere, and wanted to realise them.

Since 2006, the urban outdoor is OAKOAK’s playground. He collaborates with other street artists such as Fra Biancoshock (Italy), The Wa (Germany), Bulbe (France), Zabou (UK). He recently did some interventions all around the Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport business area.

His work has been published in two books, one at Edition populaire (2011) and the other at Editions Omaké (2014).
