Oh Paris, what a great time we had. No planned walls but three days of intense painting. Here’s a short summary.
Vitry-sur-Seine is one of the suburban municipalities of Paris, located in the South East. The city is the home of France’s most famous street artist, Christian Guémy aka C215. Over the past years he has covered the area with his stencils, as well as invited some of the world’s best artists to paint there such as Alice, FinDac or David Walker.
The locals were really pleased to see the new addition to the area. The mural I painted represents a couple of young lovers looking at each other. They are both holding their chest, and their hearts are revealed.

2. La Butte-aux-Cailles
The 13e district is one of the best to see street art with pieces from Jed Aerosol, Miss Tic, Seth, Jana and JS, Borondo, BToy and many more. The municipality tolerates and encourages it, especially in la Butte-aux-Cailles.
I’ve painted two pieces there. The first one represents an iconic woman with a breathing mask holding a spray can as if she was praying. The second one features the girl from my piece in Vitry but on her own.

I painted very quickly in Belleville last time I went to Paris, and almost got caught by the police doing so. This time, I painted for some time and got caught ha! Well the police officers were nice and just let me spray in peace.
I sprayed a big colourful chameleon with its tongue out – so people can play around taking photos pretending they are getting stuck. I also painted a prince frog who appears to have eaten the princess instead of kissing her.
