Tour Paris 13 – Temporary. Free. Open. Art.

Street Art Exhibition

Exterior

This Paris building will be open, free to the public for a month. Over 100 street artists have created this powerful mash up. In November the building will be demolished in stages to reveal the interior work. It’s difficult to articulate how inspiring I find this project. The collaborative aspect combined with the temporary nature of the work makes a strong statement about urban life.

Founder Mehdi Ben Cheikh “This project is the embodiment of the ephemeral nature of street art,” he told FRANCE 24. “And while artists need to sell their work to make a living, street art is and should be free for everyone. Art inspired in and for the street, where it cannot last forever, has an extraordinary power.”
