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!
I hope you're all enjoying the lovely weather! I managed to venture out and lose some art today, in a neighborhood I rarely get to, in the 20th arrondissement. I happened to have a broken piece of chimney pipe that I'd picked up in the street, and this church on the place Maurice Chevalier seemed like a good fit for its dimensions. I hope that somebody finds it and gets in touch! Now that the summer is here, I'm already looking forward to losing some more art in the coming weeks. As always, if you know somebody in the neighborhood, please share and spread the word. And if you have any questions about the project, don't hesitate to drop me a line!
This painting, acrylic on found broken chimney pipe, 16.5cm x 31.5cm, was left on the Place Maurice Chevalier in Paris, on April 26th, 2017 at 3:00pm.
