Paris has an amazing street art scene.  And, regardless of what you think about the defacement of buildings, there is something to be noticed about how Paris does it.

For instance, the city officials who paint over illegal street art will actually leave some art in place if it is by a famous street artist or if it is of high enough artistic value or quality; in other words, if it’s something interesting rather than the name of a girlfriend.  Also, the city cannot paint over a certain height, so, if the art is high enough, it will be left there by the city.

Now, let’s check out some of the crazy street art in Paris! 🙂

The photos below illustrate some of the most interesting street art that I have seen while in Paris.  There is a bit of history or information surrounding most of the works below or their artists but, to be honest, I don’t remember all that much about it.  But, I do remember hearing that many of the regular street artists do have some sort of day job and they do this as a sort of hobby.

So, enjoy the photos and if you know anything about any of the street art below, leave it in the comments and let us know. 🙂
