Jarus in Boulogne sur Mer, France

After Sweden, Jarus reached the shores of France where he just finished working on a big new wall in Boulogne-Sur-Mer, France.

The city is a fishing town and with this artwork, the Canadian artist wanted to honor their main industry and the fishermen that have lived there.

Inspired by the people he meets and the beauty found in the natural surrounding, Jarus tries to make people closer to art and to encourage them to look at things in a different way. Recognizable by his realistic portraits, the main feature that reveals his skill is the painterly quality of his stroke and smooth play of the light and shadow particularly noticeable on the faces of his subjects. The speed and the ease with which he paints are quite opposite to the result he achieves that rather resemble technique of fine oil paintings.

Take a look below for more images from Spraying Bricks while we wait to hear more from Jarus in the coming weeks.
