In Paradisum Cantavit – (Google Latin for “The Paradise Crew”) – is a 53’ wide mural created by JT Burke that will be unveiled at Fabrik Projects Gallery on Saturday, September 8, opening day of the Los Angeles fall art season. This outdoor mural is composed of Burke’s original photos of vintage costume jewelry and brass figurines, assembled together digitally to create an eye-popping panorama of cheeky characters that are the inhabitants of his visionary world.

This highly detailed, large-scale image is an ambitious continuation of Burke’s series of images that envision Paradise as a beautiful myth and a concoction of human desire. His use of jewelry and ornamental objects as the building blocks of his joyous utopia ties together tangible objects from the human world with a vision of mankind’s ultimate beauty.

JT Burke is now represented by Fabrik Projects Gallery. In Paradisum Cantavit will remain on view through 2019.
