    wonder how long it took him to create these wonderful illustrations.

    Love this, the multi layers kinda reminds me of a more modern ‘akbar rejoicing at the birth of his second son’ (catchy title no?) which i had the pleasure of seeing at the V&A a while back – pretty sure the artist was unknown…. don’t suppose San Poggio has been plying his trade for 500 years or so?! Great website you got here! check out our blog if you fancy! http://www.newnotnew.blogspot.com x

    These are really cool, they slightly remind me of Where’s Waldo, especially the second and fourth.

      Exactly what I was thinking! Though over here the fellas called Wally 😉
      Anyways, these are fantastic and do bring a smile to my face. I wonder what inspired San to paint these scenes.

    • Steven Duncan

      yup. soooo true. I like em

    they remind me of some old video games, and as if they had evolved on their own in absence of a player…

    This is amazing! This also remind me a Filipino cartoonist named Larry Alcala who made “Slice of Life” you can check his work by searching google images. Too bad his website is down now.

    The detail of these paintings is incredible. I imagine them to be quite large in real life. I’d love to have the time to inspect them properly as there is so much to see in every area of the paintings. I like the consistency of style and theme, although each painting tells a different story, they are all connected. I don’t quite understand them yet but then I kind of feel like you are meant to make up your own story. They almost feel like they’re illusions or a strange kind of Where’s Wally

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). 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!
