Paris, France street art -
So, what is `art' exactly? The spice of life? Maybe...one of them anyway.
But...really...is it geometry, abstracts, architecture, portraits, landscapes. tags, posters or signs? Or is it about street art, accidentally discovered on some winter evening ?
...the evening air's sharp, cafe lights warm, the smell of nutella and crepes; my path from Ile St Louis, by Notre Dame and across the Seine, past City Hall, the traffic and gaggles of rugged-up skaters; the swish and ring of steel on ice.
I'm somehow drawn to this silent sidestreet of an alley; could have easily turned right, not left. There's a bare tree in a smallish square. A single lamp: a beckoning face on a tall brick wall, my boots on cobbles far too loud.
