The Playfully Political Street Art of Fra.Biancoshock

The work of the street artist known as Fra.Biancoshock can be witnessed all over Europe as well as a few places beyond.  The artist has a very specific and recognizable style of street art.  Fra.Biancoshock's work is typically temporary, only lasting for a moment, and often very humorous.  While a few pieces caused me to laugh out loud, it soon becomes clear that the work isn't shallow or entirely carefree.  Rather, Fra.Biancoshcok uses his artwork frequently to address issues such as class, poverty, urban life, commercialism and modernity.  The temporary installations, performances, and sculptures offer a fresh and at times absurd perspective of the city and life in it. See more of Fra.Biancoshock's art after the jump.
