20 Fascinating Street Art Installations By French Artist Cal

Cal is a French artist who shows that not all graffiti and ugly tags are street art. In all kinds of nooks and crannies, the artist hides small works of art, and the way they use their surroundings is completely ingenious.

The artist said that in a recent interview with Bored Panda, they consider their art light-hearted. “I play with what surrounds me. I love to divert things from their original purpose,’ says Cal.

The artist says that they walk a lot and are always observing the details. “I often notice that a specific stone, piece of pavement, tree, brick looks like something,” says Cal.

Cal mostly creates art in the streets and parks of their town, Lyon. The artist loves going back to check on their works to see if they’re still there. “The artworks stay up from 5 minutes to several years depending on both the techniques and the discretion of the drawing,” says Cal.

“This year, I really enjoyed making fake books out of bricks, giving them titles, etc. I offered 5 of them (leaving them in the street) and put the 5 other ones in my art gallery @atelierducanal,” said the artist.
