These Сalifornia Road Signs Will Remind You Of The Best Feeling On Earth

The desert landscape of Twentynine Palms has recently had a cute addition — colorful broadside billboards with an important message. There’s the same word on each of them. Written in different languages.

If you head east, you’ll see signs in Amharic, English and Traditional Chinese. To the west there’s word “Love” in Spanish, Farsi, and Kannada.

Together, the road signs near Glass Outhouse Art Gallery underline that there are no borders for this universal feeling.

Billboards were hand painted by two painters — Jacob Rafati and Katie Williams. The text on each of them was designed by a different artist. Katie and Jacob used their calligraphy to create stencils for the text art and preserve artists’ handwriting.

For example, the lettering in Farsi was made by Shirin Abedinirad, an Iranian artist best known for her mirror installations.
