Clet Abraham is a fantastic street artist renown for his contemporary interpretation of everyday street signs. His father is a famous French writer named Jean-Pierre Abraham.

The artist was born in France in the year 1966. For his collegiate studies the artist attended the Academy of Fine Arts located in Rennes, France which is in the northwest area of the country. Clet relocated to Florence, Italy in 2005 where he still resides.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Below a great clip showing the hilarious imagery that the artist can create out of boring everyday street signs:

Clet is an amazing artist who is not only very creative, but funny! His style blends everyday imagery with figures that remind me of modern artist Julian Opie. Very clean and simple line work but very expressive with his characters he creates. His finished works also remind of the First Nations group of artists as many times his colors in these works are red, black, and white.
