Last August, French artist Julien de Casabianaca went to visit Louvre where he discovered a bored-looking girl in the corner of a painting. His first impulse was to figure out a way to free her and give her a second life. So, he snapped a picture of the girl in the painting, printed it out, and pasted it on a building in Paris. After that, his friends started to do the same thing, and the project grew from there.
Nowadays, you can spot tons of outings from different museums all over the world from Paris, NYC to Barcelona and even Rome. It’s a way for people to bring those historical paintings to life on graffiti walls and give them a fresh start.
Ha, imagine walking by one of them and be captured by their unexpected beauty. That would be fun, wouldn't it?
P.S: Looking at art and guardians of Russian art.
P.P.S: Stay tuned for a new and beautiful adoption story.
