What we're about
I'm organizing tours that concentrate on the most street-art-active places in the city. I'm a passionate insider who collects all info about the art and the artists behind it. From the streets, many have find their way into the Art World and Art Market, and now can be seen in galleries, museums or art auctions around the world. Some work carry political, social and artistic references, while other are more personal. My job is to always be aware what is going on in the Street Art World and Community and be able to bring you all the best stories during my tour. The art itself is free!
My mission is not only to promote street art, but also create a platform for travelers, expats and locals to meet, discuss and discover the other way to see the city and it's suburbs.
My adventure with street art started in 2009, during my studies at the Strzeminski Academy of Art in Lodz (Poland). Mainly thanks to the festival Urban Forms, I’ve met many street artist, whose work fascinated me.
Over the last few years I've traveled to several street art festivals, participated in large number of exhibitions and events. Meeting artists and people involved in the movement helped me to understand the phenomenon from many different perspectives.
After my MFA I moved to Paris, where I decided to share my knowledge and my love for art.
As such I will be regular hosting street art walking tours and would be pleased if you could join me! The idea behind these tours is also that they will help me raise money to continue with my own artwork, visible here: www.kasiaklon.com (http://www.kasiaklon.com/)
