The subtly subversive work of artist Roadsworth fits well in the long history of street art.  However, rather than finding his art on the wall, you’ll need to look down.  Roadsworth, as his name suggests, sticks to asphalt.  Making slight additions with paint to the language of road symbols, Roadsworth provides drivers and pedestrians alike with brain-interruptions for the morning commute.  Roadsworth explains:

“The ubiquitousness of the asphalt road and the utilitarian sterility of the “language” of road markings provided fertile ground for a form of subversion that I found irresistible. I was provoked by a desire to jolt the driver from his impassive and linear gaze and give the more slow-moving pedestrian pause for reflection. The humourlessness of the language of the road not to mention what I consider an absurd reverence for the road and “car culture” in general made for an easy form of satire.” [via]
