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.
