Funny ball game


I don't think there will ever be a world cup of this ball game(!), but if there was, I'm sure Jérôme Mesnager (the artist of this graffiti) would be the champion! I've shown several samples of his work on PDP over the past 5 years, but I could not help but stopping and pulling my trigger when I saw this one at rue Lhomond in the 5th arrondissement. Really creative. Check out his site and you'll see many other ones in the little video he posted.

  1. Interesting. These guys remind me of the underwater Inferi (living dead) in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

  2. Now that you mention it, Suzy, they do. Oops, let's not get started on Harry again. We'll bore the pants off the rest of the PDPers ;)

  6. I'm afraid I had the same first thought as Suzy and Mrs. V. Far as I'm concerned, you can keep on showing us these corps blancs, Eric—I love the way the artist came up with a clever idea and just RAN with it!

  7. Chasin' the train (of thought) and finding new ideas.

  8. The movement there is really wonderful! If only it wasn't all over someone else's belongings ... maybe they gave permission. I can hope.

    PDPotters: oh yes, the Inferi!

  9. To me, it doesn't look like a ball game. I think it looks like someone grabbing an idea. Maybe many working towards and idea and someone figures it out first? I don't know, just a thought. :)

  10. Mesnager... I love him, and everything he draws is perfectly proportioned with the human body.. I stopped by the bookstore Mona |Lisit near the Beaubourg a few days ago and asked if the Mesnager they had drawn on their awning cost lots of money. They said that he did it for free when he was booksigning there years ago.

  12. Eric,

    Thank you so much for posting THIS picture. I have seen different scenes of the this art each time I've visited Paris. In searching for him, I was sent to a place where he had had a studio and and just moved, but no one knew his name. Merci Beaucoup! Teri

  13. And the beloved, he is wearing the same accessories shall have the hearts of girls dream, while the compact design, so that the men wearing Tiffany & Co Silver Jewelry has become more masculine full. Classic silver sets fit with a very casual style of clothing, whether it is brightly colored T-shirt, or a simple elegant monochrome leisure suit, is this the best Tiffany sets mix.

  14. "Great submit & Fantastic weblog! I would definitely love to begin a weblog too but I have no clue where to begin. I possess the ability to do it (not that challenging on the technical portion) but I genuinely feel like I'm too lazy to post regularly. That is the problem, should you start you have to go all the way. However blogs like yours inspire me to possess a go at it. "
