It’s a testament to Sesame Street’s popularity that the characters found in this Symbol Society poster series, despite having their features abstractly jumbled, are still fully recognizable. Oscar the Grouch, Kermit the Frog, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, the Count, Bert and Ernie have all been relegated to their most distinct attributes and are presented as minimalist wall adornments in this cute yet provocative collection. Unsurprisingly, the title of the series is ‘The Streets.’

For those unfamiliar with Symbol Society, it’s an emerging San Francisco-based illustrative company. As of now, its main contributor is Thom Pastrano, who is also the artist behind these Sesame Street masterpieces. Fans of these works may purchase prints from Symbol Society’s website.
