Following our keen interest for street art around our local area in Shoreditch, we have decided to broaden our horizons and explore street art around the world. We recently visited Cité de la Mode et Design in Paris where they are holding an exhibition on street artists from various areas of France and England.
The Wall on Fire exhibition entails of 6 street artists from Lyon, Bordeaux, London and Paris. Each artist has a different style of work from futuristic scenery to abstract nature imagery whilst having the common theme of using street walls as their canvas. Below are the works of 2 artists that particularly caught our eye, Rooble and Odeg from Bordeaux. Whilst Rooble's photorealism style is gentle and soothing, Odeg's lines and structures are quite graphicaly striking.
The building itself, Cité de la Mode et Design, designed by architects Jacob + MacFarlane, has very intriguing structured stairways that drop over the river seine. We enjoyed discovering this new, modern building that was introduced to Paris only 6 years ago.
A few other artists that can be found at the exhibition are Kalouf, Sair, Fanakapan, Vinie, Dams-Odv, Spe and Kashink. We look forward to exploring different parts of the world for more street artists and discovering different street art styles during the near future.
