Since October, I have been developing murals with students at Lycée Paul Lapie depicting diverse students reading and the books that have excited them. The most popular three designs were for Les Chevaliers d'Émeraude, Chronicles of Narnia and Star Wars.
Students posed for the characters. The idea is to show students looking into the world of stories. I am developing the paintings now. The finished paintings will be displayed at the school in May and at Fondation Des États-Unis in June 2021.
I will stay in touch with updates as the project develops.
