A historic church located in Washington D.C recently underwent an extreme makeover. An up and coming contemporary artist, Hense, is responsible for giving the landmark its new splash of color – literally. What was once an ordinary church is now a vibrant multi-colored piece of art. Imagine doing this to bland landmarks around the world? It would change the look and feel of the buildings and their surrounding environments for the better.
The newly painted church now manifests a variety of colors from pink and green, to yellow and blue, arranged in different patterns and shapes. Some may argue that this form of art shouldn’t be performed on a structure as symbolic as a church, but we certainly don’t see a problem with this resulting work of art. It’s definitely time for a change in terms of what the world finds acceptable art, and making churches more appealing with a little paint is a good place to start.
