Art, Experiential

Parisian Street Art

On a recent trip to Paris as part of my PR and Sales internship, I was struck by the variety of street art on display and how nice it is to see dull buildings and pavements brightened up. Obviously there’s a line that’s crossed if graffiti is scrawled on a historical building, but if it’s on a boring concrete wall then I’m inclined to be more liberal.

The highlight, for me, was an artist by the Centre Pompidou who was creating a detailed chalk piece based on Charlie Chaplin’s film, The Kid. From the panoramic 6th floor of the Pompidou, you could look down to see Chaplin grinning back. Unmissable. It was my first trip to Paris, but I hope I’ll be back.
