It’s always fun to look up in a big city and to observe the towering buildings overhead. While most of us are in awe of the architecture and blue skies, French artist Thomas Lamadieu sees a fresh, blank canvas for his illustrations. In his SkyArt, Lamadieu transforms the shapes of cascading buildings into funny creations that interact with the space.
His simple line drawings, which include things like a chicken playing a guitar, a man eating his dinner, an owl with a stretched out neck, and a group of guys hanging out, are visually striking against the colorful landscape photographs. Through this work, Lamadieu invites us to use our imaginations and to see the world around us with fresh eyes. He brings to life the child within, using silly faces and simple sketches to captivate his audience.
