Paris-based artist Leslie David’s “Souvenirs de Paris” postcards are equal parts historical and chic.
David created the eight-piece series as commissioned by popular hip concept boutique Colette located in Paris, with the theme of “Parisian scenery.” Each postcard features a monochromatic photo of a Parisian landmark selected “from dated archives,” with various colors of paint textures applied on the sides – as if slowly flowing to take over the photographs! Her other work _Painting Please!_ employed of a similar technique.
On the commissioned project for Colette, David explained, “We wanted to associate the unexpected colors and relief of the paint with the romantic feel of the photographs.” _Souvenirs de Paris_ may be postcards, but they look so good we might as well frame and hang them on the wall!
