Here is yet another inspiring example of creative vandalism/beautification:

These trademark toilet paper rolls can be found in cities such as Avignon, Marseille, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Brussels, Zurich and Rotterdam (to name a few).

Their color schemes are not limited to pink, but most of the rolls include pink somewhere—a color common to French toilet paper.

The artist is probably French since ‘PQ’ is a French acronym for toilet paper. It stands for ‘Papier’ (paper) and ‘Cul’ (an indelicate term for ‘butt’ that sounds like the letter Q).

By some misfortune, PQ might also stand for the artist’s initials. It is possible.

Or, if this artistry makes you cringe, take note: there are worse designs.
