Lost Art is an interactive street art project. I find objects in the street, paint street scenes onto them, and then leave them out to be found on the streets where they were painted. It's an exercise in recycling, in letting go, and in reaching out. I'm curious to know whether the paintings will be found, or if they will remain discarded the way their canvases were before I painted them. So if you find one of the pieces, please let me know in the comments!

Lost Art #5: rue Charlemagne, Paris
This week, Lost Art made its first official trip across the Seine into the St Paul neighborhood in the 4th arrondissement. This is the fifth painting in the series, and still no word from those who have found the first four, but the project continues to spread! Over the next few weeks, Lost Art will make its first appearances in the United States (I'm talking to you, Pennsylvania!) so keep a lookout for them there. The series will resume in Paris at the beginning of July. I hope you're all having a great summer, and as always, let me know if you find one of the pieces!
This painting, oil on found broken wood, 31cm x 85cm,
was left on rue Charlemagne near the intersection of rue du Fauconnier in Paris on June 8, 2014 at 5:30pm. If you have found this piece, please let me know in the comments!
