inti in the 13th, Paris

There are two very large murals in Paris by South American street artist INTI.  INTI was born in Valparaíso, Chile and he takes his name from the Quechua word for ‘the Sun’.

The first mural is a tall one on the side of an apartment building on Avenue L’Italie near Rue Du Tage in the 13th arrd.   Its title is “Our Utopia is Their Future”.

The second INTI mural is also in the 13th arrd.  This time it is a very large horizontal mural on a fence.  It’s also difficult to take a picture of the whole thing!  It seems to be a doll dressed in a patchwork of colours and patterns filled with symbols.  His knees are wooden masks and he has two gold charms attached to his belt.
