The exterior of the Palais de Justice with the Conciergerie is slowly getting renovated. In the meantime it’s partly covered by tarpaulins … and by publicity. As is indicated on the “wall”, the publicity is a way to sponsor the restoration. At the moment the publicity involves a smart phone and one of the most well known French street artists, Jérome Mesnager, has been asked to make a Happy New Year greeting in his manner.
I have quite often posted about Jérome and his friends, e.g. here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here… His white humanoid figures can be seen all over Paris and elsewhere, not only in France but also abroad.
To celebrate the event, members of Jérome’s “fan club” met this evening (Jan. 4) at a bar, in front of the “wall”, on the opposite side of the river.
