Street art that makes road crossings and paths alive

spray-caps-street The Canadian artist Peter Gibson, more known as “Roadsworth”, has given the streets of Montreal an artistic touch using spray painting. He turns pedestrian crossings into giant shoe prints, writes eye catching messages on paths and making the end of the lines that divides the paths look like plugs. He was motivated to make “Pedestrian street art” ,as he called it, because he wanted more bike paths, and he also questioned the car culture.

Since then, he is still active in both visual art and music. Other street artists are using traffic signs to draw attention.
