Street Art // Thursday, March 12, 2015
French street artist OakOak is one of our all-time favorites, and we love a good update of his work. He is one of the best artists to take his surrounding world, which is most likely the streets of Saint Etienne, France, and turn them into his very own comic strip. A recent piece showcases a sleeping, drooling Homer, maybe made in tribute to Sam Simon's untimely death? MyModernMet posted some great OakOak classics, and we added a few, too.

Well, its not like French street interventionist, oaKoAk, had gone anywhere, because he has continually been creating some of the best and most humorous street works in the world, but we haven't looked into his newest works in quite some time. Nobody can transform the mundane objects of the street into a cartoon strip quite like oaKoAk, and there is never a bad time to see what he is up to...

One of our favorite street artists/interventionists is France's OakOak, who takes the most simple public property and transforms it into his own version of a video game. Cinder blocks turn into the Scream, doorsteps into piano keys, etc. OakOak is set to open a brand new exhibition on June 1, 2012, 892 Miles, at Lazarides' The Outsiders space in Newcastle, England.

Every so often, we like to check in with French street artist, OaKoAk, to see what little gems he has made out of everyday urban objects and city infrastructure. Of course, his work is full of wit and humor, and he has a few highlights that he has completed over the past few months.

Simplicity can be the most effective form of street art. One of the best, OaKoAk, featured on the site and in the magazine this year, just released a new book through Edition Populaire, the self-titled OaKoAk. The book features a collection of some of the best street pieces we have seen over the past few years, both humorous and extremely clever.

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.

Some of the best street art has humor built into it. In the case of French street artist, OaKoAk, they take what the city gives to them and creates a witty street piece. Who hasn't wanted to turn a tile doorstep into a piano, or a sewer cover into a Viking's shield? More after the jump . . .
