DAY 1 – Vitry
I had the chance to collaborate with French paste-up artist Madame in Vitry-sur-Seine. Madame works with collage of small scale retro magazines and other materials that, once assembled, she prints out in big and pastes up in the street. Together we worked on a design that highlights the very short-lived nature of street art: ‘De peinture ou de papier seul le temps était capable de nous changer’ (‘Either paste-up or paint, only time shall transform us‘).

DAY 2 – Hope
“Against the wall (Au pied du mur)” is about the current situation in France and other countries affected by the economical crisis. We are waiting for change, hoping for something better, feeling “au pied du mur“, like there is no other way out.
The mural was painted outside Radio Marais, a local French radio which welcomes a new street artist to paint and go on air every two weeks.
