Recent Street Interventions by Oakoak Turn Architectural Details into Visual Puns

March 5, 2018

Laura Staugaitis

Street artist Oakoak (previously) continues his clever street interventions, cracking visual jokes by combining urban architectural details with well-placed painted additions. Oakoak’s eye for such juxtapositions might be explained, in part, by his former career in urban planning. His interventions often incorporate wildlife or pop culture icons, like a bullfrog’s bulging throat formed from a manhole, or the video game character Mario bounding out of a drain pipe. The French artist’s first show in Spain just opened on March 1 at Montana Gallery in Barcelona, and is up until April 21, 2018. You can also follow his work on Instagram and Facebook.
