Terry Orwell for Art-Sheep
French street artist OakOak has an undoubtedly witty way to add to the urban environment with his creations. By turning small-scale flaws of the landscape, like cracks in the pavement or a bent railing, into fun works of art, he draws our attention to them, making us all of a sudden aware of these imperfections. OakOak’s usually small and always bright in colour artworks put a smile on our face and often feature mainstream characters of pop culture.
His most recent work is in installed in Saint Etienne, OakOak’s hometown. A Simpsons-themed painting depicting Homer Simpson lying about on his back with a stuck of donuts resting on his belly. Although it is a quite pleasant display, it sadly comes soon after Sam Simon’s death. The co-creator of The Simpsons died on 8 March, 2015 and OakOak’s work looks like a tribute to him.
The French street artist has also created pieces that are related to The Simpsons in the past, like the ones with Moe the barman and Sideshow Bob. You can check these as well as have a taste of more of his amazing work below.
