OakOak is a Saint-Etienne-based French street artist, but he is not a fine artist painting in public places. His work, either on the streets of his native St Etienne, or made on his travels, is opportunistic and never authorised. He is completely uneducated in art and works full-time in a casual office. Whilst his favourite artist is Amedeo Modigliani, he points his main influences as football, comic books, video games and his home town. “I like this city, her atmosphere” OakOak says about Saint Etienne “and I wanted it to look nicer. It was an industrial city with many coal mines; now it’s in regeneration and still quite poor. But it’s easily travelled by foot with awkward aspects ideal for art. I saw shapes everywhere, and wanted to realise them.”
