Street art

I like the way street artists now glue paper on Paris walls instead of painting them with spray paint. It allows passers by to discover new artists without damaging the walls, nor costing money to tax payers (for the city has to clean these walls eventually, no matter what). I really love this one, shame that it's not signed. UPDATE: thanks to the help of a few good visitors ;-) I know now that this image was used for the cover of a record by FKA Twigs (London).

  2. Les couleurs égaient le mur décrépi et la fillette a un joli visage. M'embêtent ces troncs d'arbre devant ;-)

  4. It's a much better medium than defacing the property owned by somebody else. Now if they would only use paper love locks...-Jeff

    1. Paper locks—not a bad idea. On the Brooklyn Bridge, not all couples leave a lock. Many people are tying on colorful ribbons instead. (Unfortunately, lots of folks see this, don't have any ribbon, and tie on a piece of a plastic bag instead. Ugly!—but at least it doesn't weigh anything.)

    2. LoL ... (the picture of ugly plastic bags that don't weigh anything make me laugh but I agree... not too romantic ! Though, I believe paper love locks could be really smart ! I trust true romantics not to be run out of - good - ideas and this is a pretty one !

  5. I love how you captured the trees in the photo to give depth of field and perspective to the size of the artwork. And yes Jeff, paper love locks would be so much nicer indeed!

  7. I like the way you framed this—like she's playing peekaboo with you.

  8. I saw the whole painting on the album cover that was mentioned by Gerrit above (fb comment) and I am not surprised it was used as a cover :I had even thought of Stromae albums (the French singer) but it was not his! So thank you for the info and the link.
