What to Expect
See Paris from an alternative perspective on a 3-hour street art walking tour of the 13th Arrondissement, and discover the city’s newest street art district.

Meet your guide by the Wallace Fountain on Place de la Commune de Paris. Then, follow them to the Left Bank to see some of the large-scale murals and smaller unsanctioned works by French and international artists.

The 13th Arrondissement on the Left Bank (south side) of the River Seine has been commissioning artists from the street art culture to go “big” on social housing since 2010. Local residents are asked to vote and decide on what gets painted. You will discover a number of large works, and get an introduction to the thriving underground street art scene.

Find works by artists such as Shepard Fairey, C215, Vhils, Seth, Borondo, Miss Tic, and Speedy Graphito. Learn how the scene is nourished thanks to the collaboration between a local art gallery and the mayor and contemporary art enthusiast, Jérôme Coume. Hear about the 2013 spectacle, “La Tour Paris 13,” an ephemeral exhibition when more than 100 street artists occupied a tower block marked for destruction.

Go to the cradle of the French revolutions of 1789, 1830, 1848, and 1870 in the Parisian East, and explore a territory rich for fans of the urban arts. Discover the spiritual home of the Street Art Paris project, and explore the unique conditions that exist for the propagation of large-scale commissioned murals. As street art is ephemeral by nature, the tour is constantly changing.

Learn how sanctioned street art has become big business, and how it reflects the dominant political, social, and cultural agenda. Expert guides will endeavor to formulate questions about these topics to give you a better understanding of a new global art movement.
