Multi-talented Australian artist Michael Pederson is able to place a little humor and wonder into an average person's day with these clever pieces of sign art.

These often tiny art pieces are placed throughout different urban environments, and often contain silly and head-scratching sayings or statements. Some of these signs are made to look more official, as if they are supposed to be there and were placed by the city, while others appear seemingly out of nowhere.

Some of Pederson's pieces of sign art resemble tiny museum placards for non-existent installations, while others offer handy info about what to do if you find yourself in an embarrassing situation. The public nature of these pieces also means that when someone finds one of Pederson's projects, they are greeted with an unexpected surprise, inserted into their otherwise ordinary day.
