Lock On (street art)
Lock On is a style of street art, where artists create site-specific installations by attaching sculptures to public furniture using lengths of chain and old bike locks. The sculptures are often arranged to give the impression that they are interacting with surroundings. The installations themselves are referred to as "a Lock On" (singular) or "Lock Ons" (plural).
Lock On artists
Artist Tejn is considered the "founder" of the Lock On style.  Taking scrap metal from urban areas, he welds the material to create sculptures  which he "returns to the street" as art, secured with chain or an old bike lock. The genre was introduced when he started placing his welded iron sculptures, chained and locked, throughout Copenhagen and Berlin.
The peace organisation Pink Army places pink war toys in selected urban areas as part of their "war against war".
