Road signs are not that boring any more. Street artists play with “No entry” road sigh by adding elements to the white rectangle and twisting the meaning completely. The first artist who has been “adjusting” the signs across Europe was Clet Abraham, born in France, but lived in Italy for over 20 years.
I found these signs across Europe in London, Paris, Rome and Amsterdam. I keep discovering them in narrow streets, large roads, in the centre of the city and in suburbs. Some graffiti became more common, so I was lucky to hunt some rare ones.
Different interpretations keep popping up here and there and it might be Abraham’s followers of the artist himself, I guess we will never know. Graffiti are after all created under the dome of night..

Thank you, Yana Pokrepa. Have you also encountered such road sign graffiti works outside of Europe?
I’m glad you liked it. I found them only in Europe, but not outside.
