Street Art

It doesn’t take long to notice that Paris is overflowing with graffiti and street art .  I’m sure the Parisians are desensitized to it, but as an outsider it really jumps out.  Especially given the contrast with so many historical pieces of art throughout the city—it surely is an interesting juxtaposition.

A few examples:

Anything is fair game for graffiti….

Road barriers, buildings, cars, walls.

Stencils (my favorite type of street art):

A few posters…

Llama!

And of course more Invader….

    Love the street art! Street art was ‘one’ of my favorite things about Melbourne. though I never found any invader there… I really like the bear.

  2. Hi Beth – I’m a friend of Charles. You should check out FatCap.com & FatCap.org (French) for more street art and graff, particularly in Paris. I worked for them for the past year.
