Mathieu Tremblin – Legible Graffiti

Mathieu Tremblin is a Strasbourg based artist who implements graphic processes of intervention inspired by anonymous, autonomous and spontaneous practices and expressions in urban space in order to question the systems of legislation, representation and symbolization of the city.

In a recent project to help the average passerby understand, read and interact with graffiti tags on walls, doors or other facades. Using some classic graffiti techniques and of course far more legible letters, Tremblin hilariously turns vandal lettering into simplistic typography.
