Artist Bio:

Oakoak is an urban artist originally from Saint-Etienne, France, who since 2006 has been using the streets and whatever they have to offer to create versatile and entertaining pieces of art. He describes, on his website, his approach as unique "it consists of deviating urban elements, playing with mundane flaws, like a crack in a wall to add his own vision, his own references that often derive from geek culture; art is a means to poeticize the urban environment". He has collaborated with other street artists such as Fra Biancoshock (Italy), The Wa (Germany), Bulbe (France), Zabou (UK).
