Paris: Street Art

Street art in Paris began in the early 70s and continues today.  It can be found all over the city, in every arrondissament.  It differs from graffiti here in the U.S., and is truly an art form unto itself. The Parisians are as serious about it as any piece hanging in the Louvre. Here is a taste of what I saw in my limited wanderings.
