Graffiti artists in Paris, much like in New York and Los Angeles, have transformed urban spaces-sidewalks, metro stations, staircases, abandoned buildings-into showrooms that exhibit their work in all of its many mediums, from a proliferation of stickers to cleverly applied stencils to giant murals.
In Graffiti Paris, Fabienne Grevy takes readers on a tour of Paris's street art, and also discusses the variety of unique sources that inspire the artists, including the cave paintings at Lascaux, nineteenth-century Japanese blockprints, and comics.
