The artwork

This conducting glass paste of 60 meters long and 2,50 meters wide, located in the hallway pedestrian underground access to the Parking Center Grande Arche, place de La Défense, offers a masterful lesson of trompe l'oeil.

Depending on the angle of view, the passerby can decipher the artist's brush painting a kiss and a little girl power, or a masterful flight of birds.

Another work of Rieti is present at La Défense : Le Visage.

The artist

Fabio Rieti, born in Rome in 1925, is first a director with a color. In his urban work (the fake windows of Beaubourg, the pedestrian les halles...), he values the architecture of the colorful mosaic of glass paste.Its range of colours, earth, sky, sea, and heightens the sense of poetic places. His works also adapt in the light of the places underground or open pit delivering a range of shades, the bearers of harmony.
