Street art piece
Street Art Museum Amsterdam
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).
Gone / Illegible
Through the use of paste, OakOak reimagines a cylindrical reklama box as a lead soldier with a minimalist and colourful aesthetic.
In this artwork, OakOak intervenes on some cylindrical concrete structures by adapting them into large human figures reminiscent of coloured tin soldiers.
