City DNA Paintings by Lu XinjianJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 27 Mar 2012
Based on aerial views from Google Earth, Chinese artist Lu Xinjian creates abstract paintings of major cities across the world in his series City DNA. What appears to be a mess of abstract shapes and colors, soon becomes a coherent view of the subject city, allowing the city's nuances and unique characteristics to shine through. We completely agree with DesignBoom that these works almost resemble a Keith Haring drawing.
For clarification, above would be the city of Amsterdam, where below is Munich.
