French painter Blase has a deeply interesting creative process: after discovering old paintings, he gives them a second life with a welcome touch of humour. These pictures from the 19th century are indeed restored and updated in the artist’s studio in Pigalle, before being decorated with contemporary accessories such as caps, headphones or bottles of beer.

In other words, a clash of eras that sometimes reminds street art creations, fresh air applied with oil paint and brushes instead of digital work. Discover an overview of his latest irreverent paintings below, but also visiting his Instagram or his Facebook page.
