The street sign is a medium for street artists since back in the day.
ELEGEL commissions Popular Artists to create artworks in their styles on street signs with two requests; leave something from the sign surface in the final piece and do it for the same price as everyone else.
The result is always fun and interesting and a pure demonstration of the artists' style. The reflectivity of the sign surface shines through when lit, playing with the reflection and creating surprising movement in the pieces.
Currently, the following artists have completed their commissions:
ACTY TWO - PUERTO RICO
FISU - PUERTO RICO
GONS - MIAMI & PUERTO RICO
LUIS PEREZ - PUERTO RICO
SHITTY ROBOTS - PUERTO RICO
YUM - PUERTO RICO & MADRID, SPAIN
EKO - PUERTO RICO & BARCELONA, SPAIN
SAKI - PUERTO RICO
MIGUEL del CUADRO - PERU & PUERTO RICO
JC RIVERA - PUERTO RICO & CHICAGO
To date, the collection has not been seen except by the artists themselves and by some friends The ELEGEL LETREROS will be exhibited at upcoming events and will be produced on a variety of products, including limited edition prints and t-shirts.
A comprehensive "coffee table" book is in the works that will show the entire LETRERO sign collection and shares personal stories about the collection of the signs and the artists.
The LETRERO Collection is not for sale. We regularly offer street signs for sale in the artists stores. Commissions are always possible.
