Littered Classics

Martin Hargreaves paints litter within well known paintings for an E.Leclerc Ad Campaign.

E.Leclerc supermarkets in France have launched an exciting campaign this Autumn using Martin's amazing pastiche illustrations. In collaboration with Nettoyons la Nature, Martin's job was to recreate several classic works of art to an incredible level and add rubbish within the scene, Martin jests, "For some reason the galleries who own these paintings didn’t want me to paint directly onto the originals, so I had to paint my own copies of the paintings!" The pieces have been made into 4x3m posters and can be seen in Paris Metro stations as well as newspaper ads.
