Art Replaces Ads

7 Feb

Etienne-Lavie1Etienne-Lavie6Things at work has been very busy for me during the last few weeks and that means I’ve been escaping mentally to Paris when I have a moment or even a few seconds to do so. Like I’ve mentioned before, Paris is my happy go to place  when I need a mental break and lately, I’ve been going there a lot!

The other night as I was looking at random photos of Paris online for a bit of escapism, I came across French artist Etienne Lavie’s “billboard ads” which he has placed throughout the city. He has called the project, OMG who stole my ads? He covers billboards and ads with classic works of art. As someone who works at a museum, I love this idea of bringing  art to people in this manner. Would you like art to replace advertisements and billboards  where you live?
