I love the idea of this, so different from normal pictures of the Eiffel Tower. Right away I could tell that these weren't just lines but rather a road map. I love the idea of the map of Paris making up the likes of the Eiffel Tower because when people think of Paris they automatically think of the Eiffel Tower. I also like the contrast that the silver lines of the make bring to the piece. Since the lines of the Eiffel Tower are black the silver is enough to just blend in with the piece, but at the same time make it stand out. All in all I love this work.
What do you think?

All in all it is a lovely piece. I think there is striking sense of vision in the creation of this painting. The painting in the background definitely has much character and is unique in its execution.

The map overlay on the painting of the tower is an interesting choice that obstructs view of the tower and yet intrigues simultaneously. I find it to be an interesting juxtaposition, when comparing the appearance of the brush strokes as born of spontaneity; in opposition to the map as a signage marked by deliberate and premeditated action.

I have only one criticism in that I think the details of the map detract from the fine handiwork of the tower and its surroundings. I believe it would have greatly increased the aesthetic appeal of the painting overall if the map were either painted in a similar hue as the background and with less detail (enlarged / zoomed in).

I hope to see more artworks in this vein of style and composition.
