graffitis animaux à paris

Little animals, big animals.
Pasted, painted and stenciled graffiti animals.
Real animals and those just imagined.
All on the walls of Paris.

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.

dancing in the glitter, Paris

I am not sure what they’re really called, or even if they actually have names.    I saw these glittery confetti women dancing on a number of walls in Paris last spring.  They are part of a series called ‘It’s time to dance’ by French street artist SOBR.

Is she still dancing on the walls?

altered street signs, Paris

As you walk around Paris, you see a lot of altered street signs that are witty and well done such as this no right turn sign that has been changed into the Eiffel Tower.

They are the work of Clet Abrahams.
