This week I visited two galleries to see Street Art “on canvas’. This is one great thing about this cosmopolitan city, in Paris there are so many cultural and artistic things happening for all kind of tastes. Normally, Wednesday to Friday are the official days for the vernissages.
Yesterday I went to see the opening of the “Collages Urbains”. A Collective exhibition that presents works with variable techniques as drawing, painting, silkscreen, paper and mirrors cutting and writing, all this presented by the artists: Fred Le Chevalier, Diamant, Rubbish Cube, L.N.2.3, Pioc Ppc, Suriani, Clet, Paella, Gregos and Shadee.K.
The artists use to put their works on the streets to bring color, happiness and poetry for our ordinary lifes. Accepting that their works exposed to the obvious characteristic of the streets, the ephemeral, fragile victim of time, occasionally get stolen.
The exhibition proposed to reveal the personality and style of each artist, giving them a generous light on each work.
“Collages Urbains” will be running until June 24 at the gallery Le cabinet d’ Amateur in the eleventh arrondissement.

An other exhibition I visited this week, was at Frichez-Nous la Paix, in the heart of the Belleville neighborhood.
Considered the meca of street art in Paris, this place is a mix of gallery, meeting place, workshop and a privileged spectator of street art performances achieved on the ‘opposite wall’.
With the theme “Paris Zona Libre” that will run until June 30, 4 invasions from Berlin will happen mixing works of art, movie, music and serigraphy alive (check here their complete agenda).
Until 6 June, the first Berlinoise invasion at this place is presented by the itinerant Berlim street art gallery Open Walls that brings to Paris recent works form the artists: Alias , BR1, SP 38, Tona & Vermibus.
It’s a very good opportunity to have a vision of the capital shifted yet “rebellious”.
