Les Halles

Jonathan Madden's avatar Jonathan Madden

Les Halles is a freehand graphite drawing created in 2013. Meaning "The Halls" in French, I was captivated by the overwhelming ornate streets and architecture that surrounds the public in the "city of love". The vast amount of information given off by these beautiful structures, I could only think that I was strolling through one massive cathedral and knew I had to "tackle it". I devoided the landscape of public clutter to truly show its face, only to be represented by a single musician in the center. This drawing took 564 hours to complete, Les Halles.
