Gare du Nord, Northern station, Paris. c.2016.
Run folks, run! Beep beep! Flea market at Saint-Ouen.
Love each other. Butte-aux-cailles, Paris.
L. to r. Coluche, a late French humorist (one of the greatest), and Prince with the 3rd eye. Rest in fun, “bothaya”. (Paris, near Porte d’Ivry)
Tags or rags? Butte-aux-cailles, Paris. Unfortunately last year, I found a lot of street art in Paris was “destroyed”. Tagged over, torn away in the case of paper art. Sad really.
Gaston Lagaffe and Astérix, both very popular characters of the Franco-Belgian school of comics. Flea market Saint-Ouen.
Let’s have a blast.
Street of the little garden. Latin Quarter, Paris. As you know know, the author considers all art in the street as street art. This pretty little street is right behind the Boulevard Saint-Germain.
Jane Birkin. Quite possibly the most popular English woman in France. Before the Queen? I’m afraid so… 👸
“Tell me the way to the next whiskey bar…” Alabama song. The Doors. “Quail hill, Parigi”.
Keep running folks. Flea market.
Métro Nationale, Paris. A very good place for spectacular street art.
“I don’t just break hearts”. La street c’est chic. Miss Tic, born 1956, if I recall, is a major French contemporary artist.
Dancin’ in the street. This was in a back alley near les Halles.
Spur Street. Le Marais.
“Mugger alley” by C+S. Le Marais. I actually nearly got mugged nearby. (No harm done, just very… challenging) Always read the writing on the wall, folks.
Scotch and soda. The portrait is excellent. A few strokes for a perfect result. The shop owner might not feel the same way though… Le Marais. (May have posted some of those before…)
“We all grew up in a woman’s body”. Les Halles. I forgot this artist’s name. S/he puts little faces on the walls. Look closely at this fab composition…
“In what world?” Art against poverty… Ever the relevant question, is it not?
Thank you for flying Equinoxio Airways. In a world filled with the Tramp (on his way out though), Boris “Godunov” Johnson, the new Sultan, the new Tsar et al., watch your step as you disembark… 🙏🏻 (Mind the gap between the train and the platform…) (Audio: put in a posh accent, if you will).
In memoriam: Baptiste Daniel Lormand (1975-2020).
In what world indeed? Repose en paix, Baptiste.
