a group that goes by the name "A'shop":
They created the work at the right (thanks to Lynsey for tipping us off to this.) For 16 days straight, from dawn to dusk, this artist-run collective, A'shop, worked on a mural of a female figure that was Inspired by Czech Art Nouveau painter Alphonse Mucha. They used 500 cans of spray paint in 50 colors. Here ere are some progress shots that were taken over the 16 day period.
The artists were appropriating an earlier artist with a newer medium. And, they were also appropriating the wall, since it had graffitti on it already.
To appreciate this, watch the video here. Artists names are: Fluke - Guillaume Lapointe - Bruno Rathbone - Antonin Lambert - Dodo. More info on them here.
The other half of this appropriation duo isn't as brilliant. I refer to it as "Horror":The artist Ron Lemen has been getting some press of late. This resurgence of interest comes in reference to his take on Thomas Kinkade's work.
