The Tower Paris 13, when art never dies

 

Once upon a time a building of the 13th district condemned to demolition. For now, there is nothing new… Excepted the presence of the Parisian gallery Itinerancy specialized in graffiti. Indeed, the gallery has launched the challenge to occupy the premises and to invite more than 100 graffiti artists from 16 different nationalities to come and express his art through all the apartments in the building. So with the support of the mayor for 1 month, Parisians and tourists have come to visit this huge gallery graffiti both ephemeral and crazy … Well, not that much, because even if the building is now closed to the public and that it will be destroyed, the works themselves, will persist. Indeed, a website was created with the support of users who have encouraged the project, and you can virtually visit the tower in every nook and cranny.

 

An impressive and magical work, a powerful message.

Thomas Lallier, director, will also devote a documentary broadcast in 2014 on France Ô channel.
