Digital Street Art Uses Paris As Its Canvas
Artist Sandrine Estrade Boulet photographs public objects and transforms them through digital manipulation.
Instead of applying her art directly onto the surfaces in public places, artist Sandrine Estrade Boulet photographs objects around Paris and then manipulates them on her computer at home. Her work is unrestrained by the flat surfaces of a building’s facade that is typical of most street art and instead anthropomorphizes her subjects by giving garbage bags arms and giving a piece of fruit a pacifier. In other cases, discarded objects like a blue ironing board and a knocked over garbage pail are turned into a butterfly and a crab, respectively.
