    Seems like these deal with the idea of the park. The top one reminds me of jumanji, which is a good thing. Also, for me, the small object in the foreground looks very real and challenges the reality of the rest of the painting. Beautiful!

    Wow, I love the top piece! At first glance, I thought I was looking at a sculpture, then I realized it was a painting. It’s lovely! The colors and contrasting light and shadow and the amount of detail in the piece at the bottom is breath taking. Lovely work!

    Beauty in contemporary painting is hard to do.. these really pull you in to an isolated situation, a somewhat dreamy situation maybe

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!
