The road sign is certainly the most standardized object around us.
Who's behind the paint mask and the pseudonym "Likeca"? To tell the truth, you won't know, and perhaps that's for the best. This part of the mystery is part of the art. Likeca is first and foremost a street artist working in the shadows. His credo is to hijack road signs. He gives to the street and expects nothing in return. Yes, he does expect one simple thing: a smile on the face of a passer-by. It's the best reward of all!
His work draws on three main sources of artistic inspiration. Firstly, the French stencil movement, through Jef Aerosol, C215 and Miss Tic, which itself draws inspiration from the punk and rock movements. Secondly, pop culture, with its systematic use of everyday life and well-known figures. Lastly, his inspiration comes legitimately from Clet Abraham, one of the pioneers of road sign hijacking (who, for his part, uses another technique: sticker collage).
