These guerilla graffiti artworks by Canadian artist Peter Gibson, also known as Roadsworth, playfully interacts with road markings in the city of Montreal.

The chalked-drawn pieces of artwork includes depictions of giant cats jumping off apartment blocks, a massive bird's nest complete with eggs and a pedestrian crossing turned into a giant footprint. These quirky intercepting artworks certainly brings a touch of whimsical humor to the streets of Montreal.

The artist's initial desire to create street art was born out of activism. The outspoken artist wanted to encourage the Canadian city to make Montreal safer for cyclists, by creating more bike lanes. The artist's name and mantra seems to reflect his creative output perfectly when he states on the Colossal website, "Where Wordsworth is a poet of words, Roadsworth is a poet of roads."
