Orchestrated OKUMS

Kaipromenade, Salzburg, (osm)

I did a bit of a web search on “OKUMS”, and it seems that this word is a local phenomen, as streetart.org showed only Austria or Salzburg as find spots.


  1. Markus, doesn’t matter what “Okums ” means. Your photo isn’t about the words except as graphic style. This is a terrific contrast between the poster and the graffiti. The bicyclist just makes the picture.

    1. Thanks, Jeff! I was just curious (and a bit careful), so I tried to find out if this is the raging new shortcut for whatever – I am old enough that I have to look up all the hot slang words in order not to misinterpret them. But of course the image isn’t about the word but about the iuxtaposition of the visual languages.
