Arthur-Louis Ignoré, also known as Ali, wants to show everybody that we people have a lot in common no matter where we come from. He paints patterned carpets on public streets all over the world including geometric and botanical patterns that can be found in many cultures across the globe.

He currently resides in Rennes, France, but you can see his work on streets from New York to Finland. Until you get the chance to see them in person, scroll down and enjoy the photos.
