Unless some particularly hardy flowers are blooming among them, cracks in the sidewalk aren’t usually the most beautiful sights.
As for the water-filled potholes? Again, they don’t rank very high on the list of aesthetically pleasing displays.
So if you’re, say, a French street artist with a lovely penchant for mosaics, you fix up those unpleasant sights in the most colorful way possible.
See what Ememem has been up to in his hometown of Lyon.
He’s been to a few other European cities too, including Paris, which you can check out in the brilliant gallery below, and maybe, soon, in real life?
When street art looks like the walls of a great cathedral.
Or an old wall in Portugal.
Raise your hand if you want to repair cracked walls like this one.
And go to colorful squares like this one?
Blue swirls attract the eye …
… Orange splatter on the sidewalk does too.
Ememem loves the most colorful shades.
Makes the sunniest repairs …
… And it’s wonderful.
