City DNA

Artist Lu Xinjian creates meticulously painted aerial views of cities on Google Earth––including New York, Beijing, Munich, Antwerp, Athens, Basel, and Los Angeles. Each painting uses an abstract pattern the artist derives from views of the cities. The patterns are then made into stencils using Adobe Illustrator and a cutting plotter, and Lu chooses the colors of each work based on the cities’ national flags.
