Ernest Pignon-Ernest works constantly on the links between people and places, using drawings made from images of famous people, events or even paintings to “re-inhabit” a place that holds their memory and so engendering reactions with the contemporary inhabitants of that place, or with simple passers by: you and me in other words. His work is rarely shown in galleries. It is truly “street art” in the sense that it uses the street as its wall and its audience. This series of photographs shows examples of the work he did between 1988 and 1995 in Naples, using images from Italian paintings, essentially by Caravaggio. (via)
