Ten-story Parisian building covered inside and out with over 100 artist's work

Street Art // Monday, October 07, 2013
A massive ten-story building in a low-income housing district of eastern Paris has become one of the largest venues displaying street art ever. Organized by art gallery owner Mehdi Ben Cheikh, “Tour 13” has taken seven months to complete and includes over 100 artists from around the globe. 36 Apartments, a basement, staircases, the façade, basically everything, has been covered in art. The catch is that the building is set to be demolished starting in November, so you have one month to go view this ephemeral project before it exists only in photos.

Natalia Rak's Legend Of Giants

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 07, 2013
Polish street artist, Natalia Rak, created this piece entitled, The Legend of Giants, a young girl in traditional Polish garb, watering a local tree.  Rak seems to have broken through a lot of trends in public art as of late, adding a clearly present feminine emotion to her work, essentially telling a story.  An exaggerated soft-tone fills the side of this 4-story building, almost as if the piece had brush strokes, not sprayed.  Which feels unfamiliar when compared to the more mechanical or deconstructed work we see today.
