Graffiti artists in Paris, much like in New York and Los Angeles, have transformed urban spaces—sidewalks, metro stations, staircases, abandoned buildings—into showrooms that exhibit their work in all of its many mediums, from a proliferation of stickers to cleverly applied stencils to giant murals. In Graffiti Paris, Fabienne Grévy takes readers on a tour of Paris's street art, and also discusses the variety of unique sources that inspire the artists, including the cave paintings at Lascaux, nineteenth-century Japanese blockprints, and comics.
