The art community responds beautifully to the senseless attacks in Paris

In the wake of the November 13th attacks that shook Paris and the world, the international art community has come together to respond to this senseless tragedy.

Sometimes words aren’t enough to convey exactly how we’re feeling, so we’re grateful that art can speak louder than we can at times. Everything from the blue, white and red tinted cartoons to Eiffel tower-inspired art had been drawn just hours after the events unfolded.

We’ve dug up some of the most poignant and memorable artworks around social media that not only speak of the anguish in Paris, but of the strength Parisians are showing in the face of tragedy.

#Paris je t’aime
