If the streets of the city of Lyon were giant pages of a coloring book, one of the most lively children filling those pages would be the French artist CAL. He is responsible for a number of urban spaces loaded with painted humor, which draws our attention to places rarely noticed in large cities. 

Ever since 2016, the artist has been using his talent and expertise to distract everyday objects from their original purpose. His method? Playing with iron plates, peeling walls, and abandoned objects by giving them a new vision to fulfill. 

Scroll down and take a look at some of his works!

Sometimes during summertime in the city, it feels like this is possible.
