Clever Depictions of People Interacting with Graffiti

Please Draw Me a Wall is a playful photo series by photographer Julien Coquentin. In each scene, the French photographer documents his subjects as they creatively interact with a variety of colorful graffiti. His compositions incorporate a single person perfectly arranged next to an illustration, which creates the illusion of a three-dimensional world.

In reality, the scenes are just flat, fictional places where a guy fishes for cartoon fish, a young girl attempts to capture the illustrated birds flying overhead, and a child carries an umbrella to avoid the light blue paint dripping down the side of a brick wall. However, viewers are invited to create narratives based on Coquentin's creative visual stories that blend real life with imagination. In addition to this work, Coquentin has been known to concoct many other bizarre worlds, including this series in which he brings to life the secret story of a discarded TV.
