Art de rue

There are several zebra crossings on Hoche place where these drawings have appeared! Seems someone wanted to emulate Jean Cocteau.
---------------------------
Sur plusieurs passages piétons de la place Hoche sont apparus ces dessins qui me font penser à Cocteau (en un peu moins bien quand même...)

This is by a very talented artist, I like this art work a lot, so simplistic and yet strongly emotive.

Risky place to make your art though...

Vogon Poet said...

This is the one of strangest place to draw something and it is even difficult and risky to observe the finished work. Nice and original though!

Jacob said...

What is a zebra crossing? Would you consider this graffiti? Interesting for sure!

James said...

Very cool! You cou could frame that photo.

Marie-Noyale said...

Il faut avoir l'oeil!!
Deja que les Français ne traversent jamais sur "les clous"..
Maintenant ils auront une raison:
ne pas abimer ces graffiti!!!!

Janella said...

I was wondering what a zebra crossing was, too, until I realized it's a crosswalk!! Interesting place for art!

Hmmm. The artist has chosen an interesting "canvas." Definitely NOT the safest spot but surely one where his/her work will get noticed.

Buck said...

Does he work at night? What an interesting photo, and a great story. Art really is everywhere!

gogouci said...

Well the artist at least has an audience.

Lee Spangler said...

It is a novel idea but the artist's blood could become part of the drawing if he's not careful.

Olivier said...

bravo tu as l'œil, et surtout une belle création, l'art de rue comme je l'aime

@ Jacob: Janella's got the answer above!

Une bonne idée d'encadrer Ainsi Une linéaire création. Je pense à un pochoir que j'avais trouvé à Lyon:
"Que fais tu
de mes mots si
tu ne les lis pas,
tu les efface
Avec Tes pas? "

Very interesting!
BTW, yesterday in my French group we talked about "Le Hameau de la Reine".I think you have already posted about this place. Is it possible to find about using your labels?I search about "Hameau"and I could not find...any clue?
Thanks dear Ciel!

This mystery person seems to be trying to make his own mark on history! I'll have to read and see if I can figure out what the zebra crossing is!

I'd like to see him try that on a real Zebra.

My money was on you to get my Wednesday Doorway!!

Halcyon said...

Strange place to show your art. If you want to call it that.

cieldequimper said...

@ Léia: no, actually, I haven't yet. What I posted was the Petit Trianon (see label). It is part of Marie-Antoinette's domain as is le hameau.

PERBS said...

I have never seen that before. . . I guess it would be unique to do your art in a crosswalk BUT it will disappear when they repaint them and all will be lsot unless the artist also takes a photo like you did.

BaysideLife said...

Interesting canvas. The art is actually quite good. Hard to frame though!

Steffe said...

Great street art.

des passages piétons oeuvre d'art est ce bien raisonnable pour la sécurite routière

JM said...

Cool! Not a common sight on a zebra crossing here.

Charming. I love the freshness and the lovely drawings.
