A few months back, French street artist, OakoAk, came onto our radar with some of the most clever, and simple, street works we had seen all year. We liked the work so much we put some of our favorites in the June 2011 issue. We just noticed OakoAk posted some new works.

Julien Pacaud is an illustrator currently living in Le Mans, France. On his website, he mentions before he was an illustrator, he was, by turns, "an astrophysician, an international snooker player, a hypnotist and an esperanto teacher." He wasn't. He also wants to time-travel. We hope that works out for him. Read our interview after the jump . . .
