Clet Abraham’s work in Edinburgh

Edited 11th November 2018. Full set of signs spotted and photographed.

Since the summer, we have spotted many ‘altered’ street signs around town which brought a smile to our faces.

Posting them on our social media channels, our followers suggested they might the work of Clet Abraham.

We dug a little deeper and were delighted when Clet himself replied and confirmed they are his work.

Clet Abraham is an Italian artist born in 1966 and lives in Florence. His work has been seen on the streets of cities including Paris, Rome, LA, London and Barcelona. We are honoured he has visited Edinburgh and left his mark.

If Edinburgh Council decide to replace them, it would be great to have the opportunity for people to buy Clet’s work with all monies going to a cause such as Social Bite and help the homeless in the city.

We have now recorded all 29 signs and Clet has confirmed we have all of his Edinburgh pieces. Gallery of all the signs courtesy of Phill Gillespie.

Clet Abraham explained his work in an open letter to Edinburgh Council when he heard they were illegal and might be removed.

Unfortunately, both ourselves and Phill cannot remember where all the signs were, so are unable to help the Council locate the signs for removal.
