Street-art tour: a journey through the urban exhibition galleries of Paris 13
View date


Your guide, Sigismond, a specialist in Urban Art in the Paris region, will take you through the stylish, signed streets of the district, in the 13th arrondissement of Paris and among the interventions of major artists on the Parisian scene who punctuate the route.

The aim is to provide anecdotes and biographical details about the artists, as well as a more in-depth look at the history of the discipline and an explanation of its techniques and vocabulary. 

The objective of the visit is not to deliver a lecture. Rather, the goal is to provide keys to the vocabulary of this form of expression that is Urban Art, to spend a convivial time with the guests, to build a team in a benevolent light and ultimately to open our eyes to other presences in the city. The history of the Street-Art movement is evoked and examples are provided, both orally and via the photos in the guide's portfolio.

- 1st stop: Le Lavo//matik, Gallerie Itinerrance,
