Humorous Street Signs and Other Contextual Street Art Interventions by Michael Pederson

Across the urban cityscape of Sydney, in parks, suburban streets, and industrial zones, you’re likely to encounter a plethora of signs and placards while going about your day: warnings, traffic regulations, helpful guides, and city services. But, look closer, and you might find an intervention by artist Michael Pederson who delights in creating humorous and thoughtful signs that blend into the city backdrop. Pederson makes use of pre-existing elements like park benches or abandoned furniture to share messages meant to snap a viewer out of their daily routine and see the world from a more contemplative or even childlike perspective, if only for a moment. You can see more of his installations dating back to 2012 on his Tumblr. (via Lustik, Junk Culture)
