Lots of controversy about this art project in London.

Quote:
An artist whose road sign art project was mistaken for an anti-Semitic hate crime has apologised for causing offence.

Franck Allais placed the red triangle sign - which depicted the silhouette of an orthodox Jewish man - on a lamppost in Stamford Hill, close to a synagogue.

The sign provoked complaints from a Jewish community group - who reported it to police - and local MPs.

Mr Allais told BBC News he "completely regretted" any offence caused.

The artist, who is from Paris, but has lived in east London for 16 years, placed 27 signs around London.

They featured silhouetted figures including shoppers and animals.

His work provoked outrage when neighbourhood watch group Shomrim NE London spotted one of the signs 200m from a synagogue on Forburg Road on Tuesday evening.
It suggested the sign meant "Beware of the Jew" and said it had caused "alarm and distress" among the Jewish community.

But Mr Allais said the work was based on photographs he had taken.

"I take pictures around me of people crossing the road," he said.

Mr Allais said he believed red warning triangles did not have a "bad" meaning, but rather advised motorists to "take care" of the item depicted.


These are some of the signs put up.

And this is the one that caused offence.

@izzythepush,
People are reading too freaking much into those signs. Any other place to see more of the signs in question?


I would love to hang one with the cat or another animal in my apartment.

@tsarstepan,
I don't know. It's just the BBC report. When I google the artist's name road signs and images all I get are the three signs already shown. This is a link to his homepage.

@tsarstepan,
I thought the red triangle meant 'try not hit one in your car'.

e.g. http://www.clker.com/cliparts/d/d/4/7/13292512551927756731Cattle%20Crossing%20Warning.svg.med.png

Now if the silhouette was in this sign
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-izr50t-Okqk/VYi2osyshjI/AAAAAAAAAkw/yJX1WQZje7Y/s1600/No%2BBoys%2BAllowed.png

Then I'd understand the offence.

@tsarstepan,
Put it in context, you know the story. If you were an Orthodox Jew living in that part of London and you just came across that one sign and didn't know about the others you'd probably freak out. I know I would. Now the truth is out it's a different story.

@hingehead,
You're right, apart from Give Way, triangles are usually warnings and circles commands.

You certainly are a bright spot in an otherwise dim world. Stay as sweet as you are.
