Don't worry, I'll spare you the anecdotes as well as the photos of me looking touristy in front of Parisian landmarks. This first installment of Taken by the Hand in Paris cover street art, which is everywhere. There's standard nonsensical graffiti marking up the train tracks, paper sketches glued to cement walls, and much to my surprise and delight, mosaics. This first set was taken on the streets near the Bastille, La Marais, and St-Germain.
|There were lots of these 8-bit style mosaics, created or inspired by Invader|
|This truimph de l'oeil is a favorite. It is positioned near trees|
of the same height so you really have to do a double take.
|I saw several of these Xes, but couldn't get any info on them. |
"X Paris graffiti" is a pretty vague google search term.
|The first floor rooftop was a very popular spot.|
