See These Scruffy Graffiti Makeover by Mathieu Tremblin

Artist Mathieu Tremblin makes scruffy looking pieces of urban graffiti legible by giving them a digitally-inspired, word art-like makeover.

We don’t know what is your opinion about graffiti, but we have to admit that not all the “street arts” look like pieces of art. Mathieu Tremblin though the same way as we did, so he started to make a change and transform the scruffy graffiti in simple and modern typography.

In the satirical works that fall under the moniker ‘Tag Clouds’, French artist Mathieu Tremblin plays a ruthlessly clean digital aesthetic off against the rough and ready, DIY vibes of tagging. He cleans up otherwise messy looking walls of graffiti – scrubbing away aliases and hastily sprayed phrases – and mirrors the content via cookie-cutter typography, rendering the previous work hilariously legible and thoroughly gentrified.
