This street art walk in the 13th arrondissement will give you the chance to discover a neighborhood undergoing a full transformation, thanks to its monumental frescoes created by worldwide renowned artists.
What to Expect
Street art is an artistic movement born in the 1960s that brings together all forms of art created in public places. Ephemeral art, sometimes committed, sees the artists who uphold it use diverse techniques such as stencils, graffiti or even bill posting. It can be seen in certain capital cities such as Berlin, and it has been gradually developing over the years in Paris, supported by public authorities.
During the last few months, commuters on the metro will have been able to see several frescoes flourish along line 6. These creations have been carried out by groups or artists who are internationally well-known. This all comes from a willingness of the public authorities and the 13th arrondissement's mayor who wants to promote Street Art along the buildings in this area.
