In Florence, French artist, Clet Abraham, has been creating his own sort of treasure hunt transforming street signs for the past several years with some simple adhesives.
'The talented artist Clet Abraham was born in France, the exact place where he began to study art, just before decided to move to Italy, which he described as the world’s ‘capital of art’. His first stop was the capital Rome, where he worked for several years as a restorer in different ateliers, learning some different art techniques along the way. After some time in Rome, Abraham decided to move to a place in the countryside called Poppi, where he set up a small studio and began to paint again. It was at this time when he got the amazing idea to create his famous series of urban street art, and modify the street signs of Florence. His creativity and humour captured the attention of both the locals and the tourists to the area, who absolutely loved his urban masterpieces'
