Biography / L.E.T.

L.E.T., short for ‘Les Enfants Terrible’, is a Franco-German street artist from Düsseldorf. Having been working in the field for almost three decades, he can be considered one of the forefathers of the art form and with his paste ups and stencil art he has shaped German street art like no other. L.E.T. has collaborated with URBAN NATION by contributing his works on a Community Wall project in 2018.

Rarely using colour, L.E.T’s black and white cut outs are the result of his take on similar pieces of famous artists or current events taking place and shaping society. Playing with subjects, he purposely pushes provocative messages about social injustices of our modern consumerist society into the spotlight, but does so with a tongue-in-cheek attitude that leaves the observer on a less grim note. His works have become so popular around the world, with many ending up in private collections, that street art hunters sprawl out at night to locate new pieces and accurately remove them from walls to then sell them to said collectors.
