Street Painting #1 – Motiers, Switzerland 

Street Art is conventionally found on the facades of buildings but Swiss-American duo Lang/Baumann (Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann) has given the medium a twist with their ‘Street Painting’ series. The two who are known for creating work of ambitious scale in public places started this particular series in 2003and are now on their seventh installment.  

Using road marking paint which is traditionally used to create permanent road signage Lang and Baumann paint geometrical shapes and bright colors directly onto the street’s asphalt to “transform the mundane urban landscape into a colourful, poetical and utopic realm.”

Their works has been seen in Switzerland, Argentina, Russia and now Rennes, France on Jules Simon Street (through May 25, 2014).

Pretty cool, right? More of their incredible work here.
