Clet Abraham is a French artist who makes Florence his home. He uses vinyl decals to alter street signs most typically “no entry signs” without altering the function of the sign. According to various interviews, Florence inspired this art because of the incongruity between the beauty of the city and the road signs peppering its streets. I first saw his art in Paris in 2011 but didn’t know the origin of it until I visited Florence in 2016. Now I try to keep an eye out for it.
