Once upon a (not so long) time, I promised you more pictures of local street art by talented youngsters. Here they are. As atypical parents who like showing their children all the facets life has to offer, we got them to climb over wooden pallets and walk through broken glass and empty aerosol cans into abandoned buildings to discover a whole different kind of art. Needless to say, they loved it. I’ll be back tomorrow with some more writing. Now pull out the popcorn and dim the lights….
These are my own photos. You can visit the artists’ website at http://www.jeaze-resa.com/
SO much fun! They all had merits but I especially liked the fabulous face!
Thanks! Which face?
Mose of them are very very beautiful art. Enjoyable to watch MM !
Thank you, AM. There are many more, but it would have taken light years to upload them all…
Great shots! And good for you for taking the kids to experience art outside of a gallery. Your description of how they got there cracked me up and made me think of some good childhood memories. Those were the good old days when traipsing through broken glass and wooden pallets and being outdoors was the norm! 😉
Glad you approve, some people would think we were nuts to set foot in there. Life’s there for the taking though so I do what I want 😉
Amazing artwork, and all done by the same guy? Where was that then, Montpellier?
THere are two of them, I think. Their work is just amazing. They have a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/jeazeone?filter=2 The buildings they use are in Aniane, beside the old prison.
Good, responsible parenting I say! Great pictures!!
Cheers 🙂 I’ll be going back soon to check out what the pink wall became….
These are really great… love the 3D ones, especially the girl with the spray can! The figure peering out from the shower is a bit freaky! 😉
They were my favourites, too. There was more 3D, but it was too scary to put on the blog 😉
The French have produced legions of fantastic street artists. I love it. I’ve photographed a lot of them in nearby Niort. Really wonderful set of images. Thanks.
Thank you. I am fascinated by people who ca draw- probably more than by people who can write. Talent is what makes the diffference between graffiti and art- I’ve noticed that none of this work has been degraded by spray-can wielding youngsters.
Incredible stuff! Thanks for posting!
You’re welcome, I’m glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for commenting!
Fantastic, MM, both your photos and the images they portray. Such talent, creativity and raw energy!
Thanks, Miss P! Check out their wabsite for more of their work. You can even rent them out to decorate your home!
I love street art and have many photos that I will upload one of these days. I treated my nephew to a graffiti workshop and we trawled the East End of London viewing the street art. Angouleme, the closest city to me, is home to The Festival International de la Bande-dessinée (comic festival) with great street art. Bristol also has a great street art festival. Great pictures MM.
Thanks, Deborah! I love professional street art, but I hate cruddy graffiti by people who can’t draw or spell. I suppose there’s a very fine line separating the two…
i’m am glad to inform you that I have nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Please follow the following link
Hello PP! Thank you very much; I’m very flattered to know that I inspire someone. I’m off to get my party dress and a bottle of bubbly to celebrate 😀
I am so amazed by these, it blows my mind– all this talent.
Check out their website- they’re very gifted.
