Julien de Casabianca ‘rescues’ the subjects of famous paintings from their frames and takes them for outings in the city.

When French and Corsican visual artist Julien de Casabianca visited The Louvre, a museum filled with the work of universally revered artists like Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio and Rembrandt, he was inspired by an obscure painting featuring a beautiful young female prisoner. “I had a Prince Charming compulsion to liberate her from the castle,” he confessed.

While the urge to swoop in and save the damsel was a primitive one, de Casabianca’s idea of rescue was unusual – he photographed the painting, printed an enlarged copy of it and pasted it on an old and decrepit wall in Paris.

New Dale Grimshaw Street Art In Brick Lane

London Calling Blog

Last week saw Street Artist Dale Grimshaw set to create his latest mural in Hanbury Street just off of Brick Lane, ahead of his current solo exhibition ‘Pride & Prejudice’ at the well Hung Gallery in Hoxton (which we have been to see, is fantastic, and shall be reviewing soon). The fantastic work features a Papua New Guinea tribesman as its subject and is yet again a real delight to gaze upon. The work featuring Dale Grimshaw’s signature subject style, maintaining a preference for strongly tribal portraits, on this occasion accompanied with graffiti presented as part of the warriors decorative presetation. all fused with that air-brushed effect that makes for such exquisite images, enthused with a sense of passion and depth that is just fundamentally Dale Grimshaw, always an absolute pleasure to witness. This work was put up with support from Mark Hat, Monoprixx & Not Banksy Forum.
