Loren Munk - l'artiste américain

Loren Munk

The artist, Loren Munk, was born in 1951 in the United States and made his artistic debut in SOHO.
He is known for his cubist paintings that "combine urban imagery with exhaustive historic research, complex systems of thinking and painterly finesse." (www.freightandvolume.com)

He was jury-selected to execute this wall mural by the Mayor's Office of Paris in 1993.

This reminds me of my one and only hotel stay/rive gauche stay in Paris. This mural was just down the street from my hotel on Rue Delambre.
It brings back nice memories.

Thanks for the info about the mural!
