l’Atlas : Paris Graffiti Revisited

About a year ago I posted some pictures of l’Atlas’ graffiti. However, I never came correct with the second batch, that uses a mixture of earthly colors to give you a taste of pointilism, an autobiography, some jungle like creatures, and a wheatpast over a window of a woman looking out the window with a real flower pot attached to the wall. That’s some ill shit. I’m going to let the images speak for themselves.














Ya’ll should also check out this video. Atlas did this project where he went around the city and stenciled a labyrinth like figure onto manholes. Anyone know why sewer entrances are called manholes? I’ve been wondering that since the Ninja Turtles, and that’s a damn good portion of my life. Anyway, after he paints the labyrinth image, which is a play with calligraphy (symettry, lines creating and negating space, order, harmony, ya ya,) he paints some numbers next to the manhole in order to indicate its lattitude and longitude. The whole point of the project is to call to attention the order of street space for the civilian who walks on the pavement, and not set up to advertise or direct those in cars and other street vehicles. It brings back a sense of liveliness, control, and creativity over the streets by those who walk it.

Clack it.

    They are manholes because man comes out the holes right? That one photo with the woman at the window is freaky on the wall all life size…

    The download The Debt DVD rip that is still standing is
    an oddity. His fee was 110 guineas, which with the hotelkeeper was 30 guineas.
    Much maudlin sentimentally, and a lot empty declaration, have been written and discussed crime,
    and contrary to the punishment of criminals with death.
