Vertical Gallery is proud to present the debut USA solo show from French street artist OAKOAK. OAKOAK transforms mundane objects using cleverly placed, humorous drawings.

The exhibition is October 3 - 31, 2015, with and opening reception Saturday, October 3rd, 6-10pm.

About the show from OAKOAK: “For me the street is a true source of inspiration. Some have fun on a basketball court or a football field. My playground is the streets. I like wandering around new cities, new places in search of elements I can play with and divert into something new, something inspired by my own references and influences: comic-strips, cartoons, video-games…”
