What to expect

Paris is the city where street art has most developed over the last twenty years. Strolling through deprived suburbs or the most chic and trendy districts of Paris, you'll come across street works-of-art painted on a wall that was once ordinary. Little by little, the city became an open-air modern art gallery. The word Street Art defines this type of figurative art that pops up illegally in streets and public places.

Your guided tour will begin in the district of Ménilmontant, one of the best scenes for street art. Exploring the hill of the 20th arrondissement of Paris, you'll discover the origins of the artistic movement, surprising stories and anecdotes, messages hidden behind symbols and themes, but also the techniques and artists behind every creation, which may turn out to be a high-level challenge. Some of them like Némo, Invader or Jérôme Mesnager have stepped into the limelight and are now easily identifiable. Others are almost impossible to identify.

Who has filled Paris with colorful octopuses? What do all those glittering diamonds painted on the parisian walls mean? Who are Megamatt, Ender and Fred le Chevalier? You'll learn everything from the horror vacui of Bastek's works, the savannah paintings of Mosko et Associés to the yellow cat of Monsieur Chat and works of many other new actors of the contemporary figurative scene. Go in search of new little street art gems, you’ll also go the top of Belleville park to admire the scenic view of Paris and Seth's large fresco. If you think you've seen it all in Paris, you should definitely take this tour. You'll be surprised how graffiti became a valuable art form when it was first considered as contestation and visual pollution. Through the explanations of a young and smart official guide, you will discover how we went from Mona Lisa to street art.
