Controversial for a long time, now idolized, street-art transforms cities in open-air art galleries. In Paris, street art fans know these streets always changing under the brushed of aerosols, stencils and brushes of street artists, and often get there to immortalize these temporary art works with a picture.
Some, such as Banksy, Jef Aerosol, and even Invader, are big names and we love tracking their works that almost because places of pilgrimage for street art lovers. Others, like Kaldea and Lima Lima are growing famous thanks to creations we recognize when taking a walk and walk by a street with the pleasant feeling of meeting someone we know.
Street-artists’ universe amazes connoisseurs and novices for this way of expression democratizes art. This fascination for this universe so deeply rooted in urban culture makes us almost feel like this is something we could never do: putting ourselves in a street artist’s shoes, feeling the pleasure of expressing one’s creativeness in a way mixing interdiction and a deep taste for artistic liberty.
This sweet dream is just a can of spray-paint away. In Paris, a group invites you to walk through the looking glass and come with spray paint to discover street-art from the artist’s point of view. Through private or collective introductory workshops, and training courses, Graffiti Paris puts street art within the public’s reach. Alongside talented artists from the Parisian street-art stage, you will discover their passion and techniques to create your very own street art.
This one-of-its-kind adventure expects you on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. And to go even further, enjoy a nice stop by their workshop-store in Paris 14th arrondissement to discover original works by artists from all backgrounds. Who knows, perhaps will you leave with your new favorite creation?
