French artist Clet Abraham's street sign graffiti first caught our attention in 2011 with its quirky alterations of standard street signs to produce satirical depictions of everyday events. Abraham recently reappeared on the streets of France with a whole slew of new street art even more satirical than his previous creations.

This series contains the likes of a "T" sign onto which Abraham painted a silhouette of Jesus on the cross, a "Yield" sign onto which Abraham painted a man sawing a block of wood, and many others. Each of his works makes for some hilarious street art, without diminishing the safety purposes of the street signs. In fact, these signs catch drivers' attention faster than regular signs, so it could be argued that Abraham not only brings comedy onto the road, but also increased safety.

While street sign graffiti isn't a common artistic medium, it's clear that Abraham is the master of his field, and will hopefully continue to vandalize signs around the world to bring people satire and parody.
