Call it guilt by association, because that’s exactly what happened to 43-year-old Mami Urakawa, who was apprehended by Osaka police Wednesday after being identified in a cctv video hanging out with her boyfriend CLET as he added some humor to a street sign in the Japanese city. A “partner both in crime and life,” Urakawa took the rap for her man’s crimes and admitted to participation in the vinyl alterations to the city’s traffic signs which had been targeted by CLET as “symbols of authority that he seeks to challenge through art.” So you must be wondering where dude is during all of this? Well, he’s currently back in Florence, Italy where the couple resides, posting to facebook and sorting out what to do.

A look through some of CLET’s work, below.
