In Madrid, crosswalks are made more vibrant to promote safety

From Madrid: – Inigo del Castillo , lostateminor.com

No one really pays attention to crosswalks, even if they could, you know, prevent you from dying.

But what if they looked different – more colourful and vibrant – rather than the boring strip of lines that they are?

In his series Funnycross, artist Christo Guelov reimagines crosswalks in Madrid by turning them into art. Using the empty spaces between the white lines, he paints in striking geometric shapes and patterns, making the ground more noticeable and aesthetically-pleasing.

According to the Guelov, he started outdoor installation series “to inquire into ‘something’ apparently non-existent or invisible to others and to provide it with real presence.”

Where is the new thinking about transport and people in Penang?

You have so many creative people, what about plugging them into the process as active players for a better city?
