Parisien graffiti.

Last April when I went to Paris I paid a special visit to Belleville to take pictures of the graffiti there - there was some fabulous art there, take a look.

This time my visit was a lot more conventional but I still took the opportunity to take a few pictures of the street art I came across;

This is a cobblestone, decorated by an anonymous artist, while this is a plaque on a wall in Montmartre; 

Just like in April, I came across a lot of cut-out graffiti; pre-prepared pieces (often photocopies) which are simply pasted up on a wall. This dancing girl is something special;

I liked this one, he's a character from Tin-Tin (but with a different body), I can't remember his name (is it Captain Bloater?);

And I couldn't resist some more traditional spray can work. 
 I saw his work last April in Belleville - he's busy on vans in the area (they must hate him!).
Then there is photocopier art;
Nicely subversive;

Here's another use of traditional streetlights and walls for subversive purposes;
And I couldn't resist another cobblestone, this one came from Montmartre.
