Adorable street art: Tiny shops popping up for mini mice in Sweden

The city of Malmo has recently been inundated with teeny tiny shopfronts covering ugly gaps in the footpath.

If you bend down and look closely enough in the neighborhood of Möllevången you’ll find several tiny businesses including a bakery and a cheese shop, all fit for mice.

Next door, an Italian restaurant called “Il Topolino” (the Italian name for Mickey Mouse) has moved in, complete with a pin-sized menu attached to the wall detailing its range of cheese and crackers. There are even posters for mouse-related films, and a tiny power station and bicycle outside.

So who is responsible for the inventive work? An anonymous artist (or artists) going only by the name ‘Anonymouse’. He, she or they have been periodically posting images on their Instagram account detailing the installation, from the construction stage onwards.

And it seems there is more mysterious work planned for the future. “Without spoiling too much we can tell you that we’re working on a new scene, and in 2017 you’re going to be able to see plenty more,” the last Instagram update reads.

Mouse-sized fika on the way, perhaps?
