crazy beautiful: street art of paris
Posted in paris, stores April 27th, 2008 by piablog

this morning i indulged in sunday brunch in montmatre. It is a gloriously sunny day here, and I am hoping the weather follows me as I board the thalys tonight, bound once again for Amsterdam. It would also be great if the piano man who plays his portable upright outside abbesses metro, along with his saxophonist friend, could follow me. But then I know where to find them if they choose to stay.

I have heaps still to share with you from paris, but will do so over coming days as you know I was not able to spend much time posting these last two weeks. Thanks for staying with me on this trip and keeping me company, I think I would like to take you with me everywhere from now on, it makes my work and journeys so much more beautiful.

I will be able to get back to normal posting when in Amsterdam tomorrow but for now, i leave you with something rather special: a little part of this city i like to call ‘crazy beautiful’. That is, a glimpse of some of my finds of paris street art. You know the drill – click here for the soundtrack which will open in another window, and then click back on this window to scroll down through this post. Enjoy, mes chers amis











if you would like to know where to find any of these beauties just ask in the comments and i will try to guide you there. thank you edith for being such an inspiration and providing the perfect soundtrack to paris. au revoir paris, à bientot!

    2 weeks already gone ? Time flies….
    It’s incredible all your photos, looks like when you get to see the same time thing very often you end up not seeing it anymore.
    Thanks for making me rediscover Paris :)

    I love the subtleness of the street art..there’s a sort of organic placement, along with colors and texture to it all.

    Dear Pia. I only just discovered your blog. My train to Paris leaves on Saturday and my brief is to get some good shots of Paris street art by day and by night for a creative project involving film and art. WOuld you by any chance be able to guide me as to where I am most likely to find these gems? That would be much appreciated. Kind regards, Zita
