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!
It's finally starting to warm up a bit, so I'm excited to get back to losing my art in the streets. A few of the paintings have recently been found, so there will be some updates coming soon! As for this one, I found a handful of hours last week to go sit on the Boulevard Edgar Quinet, near the Montparnasse Cemetery, and paint this (sort of) view of the tower. I'm still trying to spiral out into the parts of the city where I haven't left paintings yet. So if you're hoping to find one in your neighborhood don't lose hope! I'm sure I'll get there eventually! I hope you've all managed to survive the winter with your spirits intact, and I look forward to filling the streets with paintings over the coming months. I hope you'll let me know if you or one of your friends finds one! Happy April in Paris!
This painting, acrylic on found hub cap, 42cm x 42cm, was left on the Boulevard Edgar-Quinet, in Paris, France on April 5th, 2016, at 2:00 pm.
