French illustrator Ernest Pignon was born in 1942 has been doing performance and installation artwork on and around the city walls for thirty years. Most of his illustrations, paintings, drawings and serigraphs has been transfered onto walls in selected streets and booths, blending into the urban architecture that is well respected by the public. Nevertheless, his series, Extases really caught my attention. The dramatic play of light and shadow really mimics Carravagio's most celebrated technique, chiaroscuro. Thus, from the images we can see that the established artist has all the skills he need under his belt. Bravo.
