Clet Abraham turns the ordinary into a statement. He lives and works in Florence, Italy where he has his own studio. According to him, his inspiration from his street signs art stem from a reflection upon our ‘common visual space’. Street signs are everywhere in Italy and he feels that some of them simply ‘verge on the absurd’. What’s an artist to do? Clet improves the signs by placing adhesive stickers that will make every motorist and pedestrian take a second look.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
