    amazing. really nails it.

  • Gene

    These feel very strange and dark. It has a Bacon-esque style to it. And the ‘peeling’ effect is what makes it pop out!

    • ALEX IKHIDE

      OMG!!!! that’s exactly what i thought as well as soon as i saw these!! its sort of a re-imagining of francis bacon’s style and form of work

This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
