A Huge Artwork,

on the side of a building in its fire escape,

 this stunning piece is the work of artist Julien de Casabianca who is known for taking subjects from famous paintings and painting them onto public infrastructure as part of his ongoing Outings Project

 last month the French artist was invited to present a monumental installation at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art in Tennessee alongside an exhibition and workshop. De Casabianca’s seven-story mural features a melancholic girl pulled from William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s 1886 neoclassical painting “Au pied de la falaise,” which is included in the museum’s collection,

the work is part of Brooks Outside, a recent curatorial program that presents outdoor installations around the institution’s grounds and city. You can see de Casabianca’s new work at 62 E.H. Crump Blvd through November 2018 as weather permits, it must be such a thrill to be so talented, and when finished watch people admire you work.
