Born and based in France, OakOak is a world-renowned street artist who specializes in creative, place-based interventions. Playing upon existing elements of the environment, OakOak wields his wit and humor to enliven public spaces and draw our attention to oft-overlooked details of our urban habitats. Accessible and endearing, his street work draws on comic books, video games, tv shows, and other beloved staples of pop culture.

Whether it’s a sewage cover turned PacMan game or a stop sign altered to warn against climate change, OakOak’s interventions transform the mundane elements of city life into amusing and inspiring pieces of art. Declared one of Juxtapoz’s all-time favorite street artists, OakOak has been featured everywhere from BBC Brazil to Beijing’s biggest newspaper and has shown in galleries worldwide.
