For his latest project titled “OMG, Who Stole My Ads?”, French street artist Etienne Lavie imagines what the streets of Paris would look like if all the ads plastered on posters and billboards were replaced by great works of art.

The village is under threat of demolition for development, but locals continue to petition for the relics to remain while avid Instagrammers travel to see Grandpa Rainbow’s intricate handiwork.
