Assocation LE M.U.R. – Street Art in Paris

DamianAlright street-art fans, time to pay attention!

As you may have noticed in all my previous posts, Paris is full of amazing street art. Most of the street art is illegal, but gladly, Paris is also a city with many legal places for artists to express them selves.

Le M.U.R is a great example of one of those places. (Don’t confuse the name of this wall with the one in Montmartre ‘Le mur des je t’aime‘) Le M.U.R is a concept conceived by the French artist Jean Faucheur. By means of great perseverance he managed to grab a piece of Paris, where each week a new artist may show his or her work.

It was a great honor to meet him in person while he was looking at one of the new art pieces on the wall. He told us so much about his work, about other street art in Paris and other information you can’t find on the internet ;) For example: did you knew that many street art in Paris gets stolen? Such a same and a big scandal because street art is for everyone. Not only for the people who can’t afford expensive artworks but also for the people like me, who enjoy all those unique pieces. How can I capture them for you…if they steal it from the wall?! The prices of the street art pieces are sometimes worth more than 50 thousand euros! Depending on the artists of course. But is doesn’t matter how famous the artist is, street art is priceless.

By the way: the wall gets painted on Saturday. If you get the chance it’s definitely fun to have a chat with the artists! They love to talk about their work, really interesting to learn new artists!

Sweet dreams everyone or a really good morning ♥
