If you have a tendency to dangerously nod off on the road, you have two choices: either lay off the wheel, or stick to these areas where you can admire artworks while driving.

French artist Clet Abraham plants smiles on road signs—as well as on the faces of drivers and passersby—in cities around the globe.

Abraham, who is currently living in Florence, transforms otherwise mundane road signs into works of art in cities like Barcelona, London, Paris and Rome.

As humorous as his remakes are, the artist takes care to leave them “completely functional” and “legible,” Sorcha Carey, a Scottish art critic and director of the Edinburgh Art Festival, told the BBC.
