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 #11: Place Georges Pompidou, Paris
This week's Lost Art painting was left on the slope of ground in front of the Centre Georges Pompidou. It was a fun place to paint, and it seems like a natural place for some Lost Art to become "found." It's also my first painting on found concrete, which made it a lot of fun to carry across town :). If anybody does find it, and want to keep it, they'll have to work a little to get it home! I'm heading off to the countryside for a few weeks, so this will be the last one in Paris until the end of August. As always, if you know anyone in the neighborhood, who might find this piece, please feel free to share!
This painting, oil on a fragment of exposed aggregate concrete, 34.5 cm x 20.5 cm, was left at Place Georges Pompidou on July 29, 2014 at 1pm.
