It was a Friday afternoon and I was not alone at Gare du Nord (see previous post).
I was heading for quay 36, but was not going to take the train, as some others who were desperately running.
I went there to see some street art, which has been created the last couple of days, along a wall which represents the end of the railway station, the last quay, no. 36.
This is an official project, under the name “Quai 36 – Art Residence”.
Among the artists I could recognise Jérome Mesnager, Artiste Ouvirer, Janaundjs (top picture)…
Street art is getting more and more “official”. The same day I went to see an exhibition at the “Credit Municipal de Paris” (I wrote about this old institution, which also acts as a pawn shop, here and here). The previously “private” courtyard, where we can see a tower of the Philppe-Auguste Wall (see previous posts) is now open to public and an art gallery is installed, at present with a street art exhibition, which will be followed up by a charity auction (in the institution auction room), June 8.
We find again art by Jérome Mesnager and Artiste Ouvrier and also by MissTic, Mosko, Space Invader…
