Today I found myself with the desire to search for les petits urbains détails and I wasn’t disappointed! It’s a nice way to get reacquainted with where you live and I also discovered lots of bands, events, political zines, and weird little french panneaux etc.
Today I can’t stop listening to Mogwai, the weather just seems fitting. I’ve liked Mogwai for many a year now, some people find this kind of music depressing but I find it the opposite. There’s an uplifting optimism in this type of music and in a way it tailors itself to your mood.
I also adore the artwork – the video uploader used work from Ken Wong, visit his work at kenart.net
No matter where I visit I always look at the walls for some street art – that’s why I want to take a trip to Berlin so much! I always feel street art adds to the general atmosphere of a city, making it feel more alive somehow.
France is renowned for having great street art. I choose not to say grafitti because I associate that word with rubbish scribbles, et les gros mots. Most street artists choose spots that they know are unused and not somebody’s private property – often adding beauty where before there was just urban decay. And that is never a bad thing!
For the moment here’s a few I’ve gathered on a trip to Paris and just wandering around Reims, maybe you’ll see a familiar face!
