Learn all about the street art and graffiti culture, its contradictions, and the political artistic culture of Paris. Discover Paris’ most famous street art neighbourhoods, Oberkampf, Belleville and Ménilmontant, learn about the culture, visit a street art gallery, and meet the artists.
Paris street art is incredibly lively and to discover it becomes a truly unique experience. The addition of new works is constant and students become part of the making of what is, by definition, a world always evolving and changing. That is also the reason why our tours are always different and constantly updated to include new works.
What we do on our street art tours, here in Paris, is show people beautiful art, as well as explain and show them a bit about graffiti, but more importantly, we ask questions – some we don’t even have definite answers to. All this in order that you come away with a deeper understanding of the street art scene, about how the larger street art puzzle fits together, and a new found curiosity, questioning your relationship to your own environment.
Make sure you have on comfortable footwear suitable for a three hour walk, and dress for the season.
