Paris: “Dollhead” Street Art in Les Marais


Our series of posts on Paris street art and graf continues with this image snapped in the Les Marais neighborhood. This plaster or wood plaque has a high-contrast image of doll’s head rendered on it, but the eyes have been blocked out. Kind of creepy, but thus an effective, powerful piece of art. Les Marais is one of the hipper shopping districts on the right bank in Paris, full of boutiques, cafes and tons of street art. We’re already saving spare scratch so that on our next trip to the City of Light we can rent an apartment for a week or so in the neighborhood (instead of paying through the nose for a tiny, overpriced tourist hotel room).
