French artist OX got the opportunity to do a few new pieces in his home country for the Bien Urbain Street Art Festival in Besancon. In it's third edition this year, the festival is designed to spark a dialogue about public space and its usage and boundaries. Artists including Smithe, Otecki, Akay & Rae, Spy, and Lucy McLauchlan came together to create site-specific pieces for the festival which began on September 5 and will end on October 5. OX painted every exterior surface of a gas station with vibrant colors and patterns and also took over billboards with the "Affichages" (displays) seen above.
