Chris Pratt is OWNING Instagram lately. It all began when Chris Pratt started to crop Jennifer Lawrence out of their Instagram selfies. The two have apparently developed quite the rapport while working together on the Passengers film. And of course, since Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t have any social media accounts, this is also an excellent way for Pratt to prank her fans. But, of course, his Instagram game doesn’t stop there. In fact, when he’s not cropping photos of Jennifer Lawrence, he’s posting selfies with Parisian artwork.

Chris Pratt found this Paris painting inspirational.

Jokes aside, what many of us might not know is that Chris Pratt is an amateur painter! That’s right. You can even see his paintings hanging in a Greek restaurant! Last year, Imgur user slartibartfas posted a photo of an interview from a 2003 issue of Teen People. During the interview, Pratt discussed his love for art…and where we could see some of his own work.

The “Greek scene on the wall of my friend’s restaurant” Chris mentions in the interview is still there!

Clearly, we all need to visit Omega Pizza & Pasta in Granite Falls, Washington, where the painting hangs. According to MTV, the now-superstar “worked as a dishwasher and pizza deliveryman for Omega in his teens” and was paid $200 to paint the scene.

Look how far our young artist has come!
