Street art in Paris

Paris is art.

I can rhapsodize about the Louvre and the Musee d'Orsay's vast collections of Degas, Delacroix, Picasso, Rodin and Toulouse-Lautrec...but so can anyone.

Instead, I'm presenting street art that I found in Montmartre (home to some of the above-mentioned artists), Le Marais and along the Canal St. Martin.

This is art hanging on public walls behind tree branches, above garbage cans, or peeling from the harsh summer rain. Sometimes, it blares from a wall on a busy street. Other times, it's peeking from doorways you overlook.

Some of this work fun, some outrageous, but it's all a joy to find.
