The French artist OakOak arrives at Montana Gallery Barcelona with «Out of the Frame», his first exhibition in Spain. OakOak is known worldwide for his ingenious interventions that started on the streets of his hometown, Saint Etienne. Streets, curbs, walls, fire hydrants and all the urban furniture is transformed under his gaze.
OakOak has not studied art, art came to him. After working for years in the urban planning sector, one day, back in 2006, he came up with the idea of painting three fire hydrants and transforming them into characters. The result was so good that he gave continuity to these actions, finally leaving his work and dedicating himself completely to art and urban interventions. Today his work has spread internationally, becoming an essential artist in the urban art scene.
