French artist Jonas Laclasse’s chalk art forces participants and viewers to question dimensions and acknowledge the limitless nature of opportunity.

Laclasse’s art centers around chalk drawn doors. He finds urban and random locations in Paris and Bordeaux and tags them with his fake doorways. The purpose of Laclasse’s work is to encourage people to engage and manifest thought from his work. People are depicted knocking on one of the doors and pretending to lean against and lie beside another. The work creates a playful interaction between the people and the piece, but also entices the idea of the perception of doors as symbols to transport us from one place to another. Laclasse is attempting to shed light on the daily choices we face and the paths we chose to take.

Laclasse’s chalk art directly connects people to the piece and encourages them to think outside of the box. Stats for Chalky Portal Artwork Trending: Older & Mild
