French artist Antoine Kruk has captured scenes of Blackpink's Lisa performing at the Crazy Horse strip club in Paris in watercolor paintings.

Kruk, a Franco-Japanese artist based in Paris, shared the illustrations on his personal Instagram, tagging Lisa and the South Korean girl group's official accounts, as reported by media platform Sportskeeda on Feb. 23.

In his post, Kruk wrote, "Beautiful Lisa of Blackpink at Crazy Horse Paris. This is the second drawing belonging to the club, to commemorate her special appearance as a guest of last year's show." The paintings gained attention and were widely shared by Lisa's fans.

Lisa's performance at the club involved her wearing lingerie and performing seductive moves, as depicted in the artwork.

While many fans praised the images for capturing Lisa's beauty and allure, some criticized the outfits as too revealing.

Kruk, a 56-year-old painter and fashion designer, has a series of drawings featuring dancers from the Crazy Horse club and has showcased his work in various exhibitions inside and outside of France.

Lisa's performance at the club in September 2023 sparked criticism, particularly from audiences in South Korea and China.

Some South Korean fans expressed disapproval on social media, leading to negative comments on Lisa's mother's Instagram account. Lisa's Weibo page and fan page in China were reportedly deleted.

The controversy surrounded Lisa's daring performance titled "Crisis What Crisis," where she portrayed an office worker shedding layers of clothing on stage. Critics argued that her choreography "sexualized women," negatively impacting her predominantly student fanbase.

In response to the criticism, Lisa considered the show a "wonderful experience" and continued to focus on her personal activities in France after parting ways with YG Entertainment.

She recently announced the establishment of her own management agency, LLOUD, where she serves as the CEO.

The 27-year-old singer was born and raised in Thailand but made her career in South Korea, joining YG Entertainment at the age of 14 after winning a music contest.

Debuting with Blackpink in 2016, Lisa embarked on a solo career in 2021 with the release of her album "Lalisa."

In 2023 she achieved the milestone of being the first Kpop artist with 1 billion streams on Spotify for the song "Money," and was honored in the Asian Hall of Fame as a cultural icon in November of the same year.

Currently, Lisa is often seen with Frédéric Arnault, son of Europe's richest billionaire, Bernard Arnault. Despite rumors of them dating, neither has officially responded.
