Paris: Art on the Streets, Art Deco on the Walls

This is the kind of street art that makes my spirit soar. This is stencilling taken to another level!

These wheatpastes are tagged “levalet.” Why does that name sound familiar to me? Lil’ help?

These paintings were hung inside Le Musée des années 30 (The 1930s museum, which was free the day I went because all national museums are free on the first Sunday of the month). I stared and stared at these paintings. I couldn’t take my eyes off of them.


I took this photo on my last night in Paris. I wasn’t staying far from L’Arc de Triomphe, so I hopped on a Vélib, cycled over, sat on a concrete barrier, and watched the sunset behind the alabaster stones and racing roundabout. It was a hot evening, and I am better for it.

Goodbye Paris.
