There’s something for everyone here (except for anyone who prefers plain walls).  Bold spray art and delicate stencils, political paste-ups and elegant calligraphy.  There’s humour, imagination, whimsy, edginess and even a bit of poetry.

It took me a while to work out who is behind the signature that looks like AFU.  It’s actually the mark of the Nice-Art collective, a veteran group of artists from Nice who started out spraying stencils on derelict buildings in the Marais in the 1980s.   You’ll find more about Ardif here, Knorke Leaf here and Lolie Darko here.
