From Banksy to the Berlin Wall
May 3 - June 30
French Artist Gregory Herpe Exhibits his Street Art Photos in Paris
In full containment, since May 3rd, the French photographer Gregory Herpe has started an exhibition of his street photos containing urban art. Galleries and museums were all closed in France, but when the Paris City Hall proposed an exhibition to Gregory Herpe, he accepted immediately, because it would be open to the public and free entrance.
Nearly 3500 people enter the town hall every day and look at the photos taken in fifteen European countries (France, England, Northern Ireland, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, etc), with murals and collages by Banksy, Smug One, Jef Aerosol, Visual Waste, ROA, Os Gemeos, D-Face, Dmitry Vrubel, Klaus Klinger, Nils Westergard, Jamie Scanlon JPS, Otto Maja, Zag, C215, Iléa, Cisco and Cané.
The exhibition lasts two months, until June 30, at the City Hall of the 17th district of Paris and it is in connection with the project of Geoffroy Boulard, Mayor of this Parisian district, who wishes to create a Street Art route in its streets. In the coming months, urban artists will be invited to create gigantic frescoes on the facades of Parisian buildings. A great opportunity for creators from all over the world to show their talent. In the meantime, it is Gregory Herpe who pays tribute to them in a brilliant and original exhibition.
