Unique and provoking redesign of traffic signs by Clet Abraham!

Culture Story: Unique and provoking redesign of traffic signs by Clet Abraham!

Clet Abraham’s project of redesigning road signs has made quite a splash not only in artistic circles but among ordinary people as well because the author has modified real signs right on the streets of his city!


The artist was born in Great Britain in 1966, graduated from the school of fine arts in France and now lives and works in Florence, Italy. He regularly holds personal exhibitions and his many works are in private collections.

However, especially popular Clet became after his series of works with traffic signs. With the help of different stickers, he turned common metal signs into humorous minimalistic pictures devoted to society, politics and religion.

First, why mess with something thats been working, second to confusing third I don't consider them art, I don't know what to call them. Just don't put them in our country.
