Painted walls

It's very common in Paris now - and probably everywhere in the world?! When they have to redo facades of important buildings, they just hide the work behind giant painted walls. When I say "painted wall" it's incorrect ; in fact these "walls" are made of plastic canvas and they are painted "on the ground", in a factory. Once they are done, they are joined together and then fixed to a giant frame, as you can see in this picture, to make one giant murale.


  1. ah, les cheveux de la photo du manequin bresilien ce sont inspirés dans les jouets qui s'appelent playmobill, vous savez?

  2. Hi!

    I love photography and your lovely blog has inspired me to keep at my hobby for picture taking.

    I will defintely be looking at this blog more often!


  3. I don't think they do this here in Columbus, at least I have not observed the practice. Probably makes for a better look then the torn up building.
