Julien de Casabianca's urban painting project challenges traditional street art aesthetics and borrows from classical works. The filmmaker's "Outings Project" aims to bring attention to lesser known museum paintings by mirroring them on city facades.

When visiting a museum, the artist picks out his favorite hidden gems, photographs them and pastes his images to city walls. His urban paintings are applied with wallpaper glue making them safe and damage-free to brick facades or store fronts.

These gorgeous graffiti works beautify streets and decaying facades rather than damaging them. While most street art can get a bad rep if viewed as vandalism, this project encourages graffiti naysayers to embrace city murals and the artistic talents behind them.
