Paris Street Art Tour

All-

Group member and Assistant Organizer Richard Beban has been exploring and cataloging the Parisian Street Art scene for the last three years. He has also researched the history and development of French Street Art and how it differs from other parts of the world. He has offered to lead a small group through the 11th and 20th arrondissements to highlight the history and progression of Street Art in Paris.

Unfortunately, we need to keep this group fairly small for logistical reasons, BUT Richard and I will be offering this tour every third Sunday throughout 2014. Photo opportunities will abound during the tour, so don't forget your cameras :-)

See you soon!

    I completely agree with the Laura's opinion below.
    Every body can look some of my pictures on "picasweb.google.com/joelpicker"

    Wonderful! The leader was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about the subject, and took care to carefully pace the tour so we could see as much as possible without just running past everything.

    Richard was a great guide showing us the amazing quartier of Belleville and Melimonant. I had a great time.
    I also found it a little exhausting, due to the 4 hour walk. Yet I understand that due to the variety of street art, it is normal.

    Thank you Richard and Jim.

    Sunday people! I just walked the route today to see what's new, what's gone, etc. Some great new Philippe Hérard pieces in the 20th; hope they are still there Sunday. His stuff gets stolen a lot.

    There's supposed to be a heatwave, so carry water, wear a hat, and definitely bring a sandwich or a snack to eat as we walk. The tours have been running long, so there probably won't be a formal food break.

    Oh, we will NOT do the tour in July or August, solely because I will be out of town (quelle surprise, I NEVER leave Paris) on the third Sunday of each of those months.

    Do you refund the street artists with the 20€?

      Richard, I think he's asking if you pay some of the money to the street artists. Jean-Phillipe, from what I understand, "street art" in this case refers to public artwork, graffiti, etc (not street performers) and therefore paying the artists isn't really possible. I could be wrong though.

      Ah, thank you, Laura.

      No, while I personally buy street art for myself and give it to friends, and promote the artists as much as possible with our [my wife's and my] blog, and donating photography services, etc., the Meetup doesn't hand out cash. The charge for this particular tour was instituted because so many people were signing up (free) then not showing up at the last minute, depriving those on the waiting list of their chance to come.

    Hi, I recently hurt my foot and it should be healed by that time, but I wanted to know how much walking is involved? Normally, it is not a problem to walk a lot and have always enjoyed photo ops for street art here, but I need a general idea so I do not stress out my foot. What is the route, maybe I can gauge it a bit better that way, and plan a stop place if it is too far.

      Hi, Colleen:

      It's a LOT of walking, probably three hours and fifteen minutes total out of four (there's pausing for listening to the guide). And it's uphill to the midpoint of the Belleville hill.

      I'd suggest you wait until your foot is fully healed. ("I'm not a doctor, but I play one on TV.")

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
