Paris: Street Art – “Spliff” Stencil 1

spliff_stencil_paris_detail.jpg

Here’s a close-up shot of the “Spliff” stencil we found in the hot Paris nabe of St. Germain des Pres. As street art, this is subversive on a couple of levels. But what’s really striking is its illustrative comic-book style and the location on the pavement next to a public telephone (see contextual shot below) in a hood with some of the most desirable and fashionable real-estate in the city.
