Blek Le Rat - Sheep, 2006

About The Artist - Blek Le Rat

Blek le Rat is a Pioneering French graffiti artist, one of the godfather’s of the European street art movement. Using stencils instead of stylised lettering for graffiti, Blek le Rat was one of the first true street artists. During Blek’s career, his art prints have become more and more political, focusing on the homeless, the environment, and other social causes. Blek le Rat has inspired hundreds of artists around the world – including the infamous ‘Banksy’. Despite the enormous role he has played in street art, Blek le Rat has kept a low profile through most of his career to avoid public harassment. He just substituted his surname ‘Roc’ with ‘Rat’ because rats symbolise a lot for him “they create fear, they are synonymous with invasion and they are the only wild animals [apart from] pigeons that live in the city.” At artrepublic, enjoy limited art prints from this famous pioneer of street art.
