Swiss-American artist duo Lang-Baumann (Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann) have created a series of urban paintings that overlay geometrical shapes and bright colors onto city streets.

Located in the middle of Rennes, France, their newest piece ‘Street Painting #7’ treats the city as a massive urban canvas and uses road marking paint to fill the street with lines of color.

The six other paintings were completed in various locations since 2003 and this is the first one to appear in France, where it will remain in place until May 2014.

Produced with art exhibition space 40mcube and PHAKT – Center Culturel Colombier, the bold 59 x 3.7 m artwork stands out against the grey street lined with traditional buildings, injecting a strip of colorful patterns into the area. Click through to see images of ‘Street Painting #7’:
