This French Artist Found a Canvas Floating Above the Urban Skyline

by Yasha Wallin

April 25, 2013


In his series SkyArt, Lamadieu plays with the geometric shapes that appear when one peers upward in a city. He transforms this otherwise negative space into a canvas for clever line drawings of curious cats, voluptuous ladies, elderly men, a rooster playing the banjo. In this way, he populates various neighborhoods with his own idea of who its inhabitants should be. And the rest of us get the privilege of meeting these quirky neighbors, even if only in imagination.
