Salon culture au quai les filles sur le pont comite regional du tourisme de ile de france street art paris

Projects with graffiti artists have always been at the core of the Street Art Paris, erm, project. These range from developing its photographic documentation and interviews archive, through to participating in the cultural institutional salon, Culture au Quai; producing a rare collection of artists books; curating an art exhibition, workshops and painting performances at a large shopping centre; and designing an artists residency programme and documentary film for a blighted urban area in the Brazilian Amazon.

Salon Culture au Quai

Street Art Paris was invited by Béatrice’s team at the Comité Régional du Tourisme Paris Île-de-France for the salon organised by Les Filles sur le Pont, to join a group of a hundred cultural players made up of theatres, museums, concert halls and heritage organisations at an open air space at Quai de Valmy to present its programming for the season, and hold court with its own art atelier offering five hour-long family workshops by an international bag of artists from Paris, Berlin and Guadeloupe.

Street Art Paris developed a proposal for Oumar, the manager at the Montmartre Emmaüs refugee shelter, with production support from Charlie Baird, director of Flourescent Smogg – Ralph Steadman, Mear One, Sickboy. The concept involved wall paintings by a line-up of local and migrant artists and a funky-grooves party with fizzy drinks and marshmallow tubes.

Street art tours in France

Street Art Paris developed the first successful commercial street art tour in France which from its launch in 2012, until 2017, served approximately 20,000 French and non-French customers, enabling them to discover a wide array of different forms, from street bombing to Banksy, and all shades in between. By our pedagogic approach, we seek to train those with whom we come into contact to develop the critical tools necessary to interact with the artworks that they encounter, whether in the street or in a national cultural institution.

Mixed-media documentary archive

The years of work that we’ve invested into amassing a documentary archive of image, video, audio and artefacts from the Parisian and international street art culture is made for the present time, but its benefit is also to posterity, the next generation, or rather, for the kidz. Thus, we jumped at the chance to have our photography used in a secondary school chemistry textbook by a leading French educational publisher to teach the youth and pass on the artist’s understanding of metaphysics as is written in the Vedas.
