Is Clet Abraham in Torino?

  I think he might be. Famed French artist Clet Abraham has left his mark on Torino by transforming a boring street sign into a humorous work of art. Clet began his street sign transformations in Florence where he has lived for the past 20-something years. Then he expanded. Now his cheeky signs can be found all over Italy and, according to his Facebook page, London. Really it's so simple but I love it when an artist can change the way we see an everyday object. I found this sign (above) on Via Barbaroux.
