Street Art Tour of Paris 3

Last week I joined the Street Art Tour at the Belleville neighborhood promoted by the a href= Paris/a, commanded by the journalist and enthusiastic of the world of street art a href= Smith/a. In a grey Saturday morning, our group walked around 3 hours at this creativity atmosphere, surrounded by the Parisian architecture, to discover great works as graffiti’s, stencils and posters that brought so many colors to our day.

Usually when I go out with my bike, I’m always with my eyes very awake to see street art and document this in a spontaneous way, but making this tour brought me in a incisive path with great projects and some hidden street art works.

Better than just appreciating street art during the tour, was all the explanations that the guide a href= could give us. He has been involved in street art since 2005. Time that he managed, for more than 3 years, a street graffiti shop that later was also a contemporary art exhibition space called Frisson Gallery in London. He has also joined his knowledge of fine art and graffiti to intermittently teach spray-can art and silk-screen printing to young people, often in under-privileged environments.

a href= also opened my eyes to pay attention to the trucks in Paris when he explained during the tour that Paris is the city that has the most number of graffiti trucks in the world. I realized that in my research to document all messages that come from streets for this blog, trucks has the power to stay at the street as the graffitti’s on the wall but with a peculiarity to circulate around the city spreading this cultural movement.

I really recommend for everyone this great experience. As a open sky museum, the tour brings you to appreciated some nationals and internationally  well know street  artists as a href=, a href= Walker/a, a href= Le Chavalier/a, a href=, a href=, a href= Abraham/a…. And some recent projects as a href= Project/a and a href= Up LGBT/a. The tour happens every Saturday at 11am and it’s for Free (it’s nice to tip the guide in the end of the tour).
