Artist studio on the way home from San Miniato

After our drawing lesson, a bunch of us walked back down to the city together. On the way we happened upon the studio of one of Florence's leading artists, whose work is displayed throughout the streets of the city. The type of art CLET Abraham creates can be characterized as street art. It takes the form of fake traffic signs that are often very tongue in cheek and blend into the traffic signs of the city. It is both surprising and also very refreshing that a city government would allow this artist to display his work and make such public statements! I think it's awesome! :-)

Here are some images of CLET signs:
