Street artists take over 9 level Parisian building for one month installation

Paris is known as the city of fashion, but at the moment, it’s also the scene of an outstanding art project initiated by Itinerrance Gallery owner Mehdi Ben Cheikh. Called La Tour Paris 13, this unique installation will last for only a month, at which point it will be destroyed. Ben Cheikh has taken over a building with 36 apartments over 9 levels, covering a surface of 4.500m2.

Over the past seven months some 100 internationally renowned artists, such as Seth, Jaz, Lek, Vhils, and Speto, have hijacked the building to create an incredible art monument reflecting the diversity of street art today.

But get in quick to see it: it’ll be merely a figment of our imagination after it’s demolished on November 1.

Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
