Want to know what your city looks like in a unique art form? Lu Xinjian did, and the Shanghai based artist decided to take photos of cities from Google Earth and create lines and shapes based on the urban settlement of that city. Lines, curves, circles and squares all create the beautiful, colorful painting.
Lu Xinjian has been doing his “City DNA” as he calls it for the past three years and has covered major cities in Asia, Europe, North America and Australia. The colors of each piece are chosen based on the official city and national flags. Do you see your city?
