French artist Jean Jullien takes a cheeky look at beach culture through his series of visual ruminations entitled "La Plage." Inspired by the social oddities of hanging seaside and "how naked it all gets," Jullien created pared-down yet vibrant images of ice cream melting, people swimming and of course, the ubiquitous butt. His abstract, Rothko-like giclée print called "Bum" is the perfect subtle reference ready to shine at home.
