French artist, Julien de Casabianca – dubbed the Robin Hood of Street Art – takes portraits of characters plucked from classical paintings found on the walls of museums and pastes them onto public buildings to create his unique style of art.
His lecture gives a humorous and poignant insight into what drives him to create his street art, a process which began with an unlikely discovery in his childhood home and continues today with portraits from museums all around the world.
