If you’re walking the streets of Paris, you might notice some faces emerging from the walls around the town. They are sort of self-portraits made by the street artist Gregos, who grew up in the northern suburbs of Paris. During the late 90s, he started experimenting with sculpting and molding techniques. In the Montmartre district, where he now lives, his ever-present present street art is a feature. Each face is an expression of his humour, his past, present, and future. More than 400 faces have been installed, in Paris mostly, but also in other towns of France.
