Road signs become art in Antwerp

Drivers in the northern port city of Antwerp are enjoying a rare treat. Somebody has turned a set of ordinary road signs into works of art and the smart money is on the French artist Clet Abraham as the culprit.

Road signs in the area around the Nationalestraat and the South Docks have been doctored.

As the accompanying snaps profusely show banal road signs have been turned into exquisite works of art. Clet Abraham is not admitting being behind this latest handiwork, but he earlier had fun in Bruges and Brussels.

On the no-through-road sign the white stripe has been turned into a tin of sardines and even the traffic lights were not immune: when the lights are on red, a red devil appears.
