Street Art in Paris

Present for several decades in Paris, Street Art has acquired real artistic legitimacy since few years, thanks to artists who have placed their works in art galleries.

But it is on the walls or playing with street furniture that Street Art makes sense. A contemporary art that some still continue to decry, but nowadays settled as a unavoidable urban way of expressing.
