SAMBRE (work in progress)

Since January of this year 50 of the world’s most prominent street artists have left their mark on Les Bains, a rundown nightclub in Paris.

After unsuccessfully trying to save the building, owner Jean-Pierre Marois and gallery owner Magda Danysz began inviting artists like Sambre, Futura, and Space Invader to make work in the space. Slowly the place has been filled with art.

Next week renovations on the building will commence, and all the incredible work will be destroyed. I’ve included my favourite pieces from Les Bains below!

Yué Wu for Absolut Art-Stream

Artist Yue Wu for Absolut
Parisian artist Yué Wu produced 60 hand-painted bottles for the launch of Absolut Art-Stream. The bottles were photographed and placed in sequence, and the result is a gorgeous animation. I have to say, I know quite a few creative people and out of all of them Yué may be the most talented. Watch the video below!

Francoise Nielly

I told ya I was gonna feature more painting on the site so that’s exactly what I’m doing. Fantastic oil paintings by Francoise Nielly. She lives and works in Paris and has shown all over the world (even right here in Vancouver). Such bold strokes with a palette knife – what’s not to love?
