If you’re not able to spend the day in New York wandering around MoMA, here’s the next best thing… oil paintings of other people spending their day wandering around MoMA! This is a series by UK based artist John Tierney – his goal with all of his work is to, “create paintings that provide a strong sense of place, a feeling of what it is like to be there.” Well, I think he did it because I reallllly wish I was at MoMA right this very second.

    wouldn’t it be nice to have a commissioned piece of yourself pictured in your favourite museum?
    I may well be the perfect consolation for the many times you are not able to just go there…
