Parisian Graffiti – Part Trois

Like I said, no shortage of interesting graffiti.  Maybe I should go over and start a Parisian Graffiti walking tour?

Tell me, do you find graffiti a nuisance?  Attractive?  Interesting?  Scary?  I found most of the art to be innocent and interesting in Paris.  There was relatively little that was obscene or gang related.  So, for the most part I enjoyed it unless it was over top something I felt had a lot of history that was ruined.  In many ways it provided interest to areas that were relatively uninteresting.  In other places, it seemed to just be everywhere and if I lived there I imagine I would get tired of it.  What do you think?

Parisian Graffiti – Part Deux

There is actually so much interesting graffiti in Paris I quit photographing it and just focused on the art I thought was different, or weird, or interesting in some way.  I couldn’t believe how great some of the art was, how prolific it was, and how it almost seemed to be encouraged in the right locations.

French Street Art – Paris

Street art has gotten quite popular these days. Like any art it is in the eye of the beholder. What was once, and often still is, considered illegal graffiti some is done with such skill it is hard to avoid enjoying them.

Below are a few photos, courtesy of my good friend Manuela Renz, during a trip she took to Paris a few years ago. I have always liked them even using them as my screen saver at work occasionally. It has always struck me as fun to see interesting art like this in a City known for its world class masterpieces nearby in the Louvre, other museums and chateaus throughout France.
