OakOak, a French street artist whom we previously wrote about here and here, is back with more of his signature clever and witty street art pieces. Each of his illustrations constitutes a sly little urban intervention meant to brighten and interact with its surroundings.

By day, OakOak is, as he calls himself, a “pen pusher.” But when he’s not working, he’s busy beautifying his native St. Etienne and other cities throughout France. But unlike many other street artists, his work is very understated, often consisting of nothing more than a tiny but well-placed character or a few features that create a face. They also interact wonderfully with their surroundings, giving various signs of urban decay new, playful meanings.
