Edition of 500 copies, hand signed and numbered by the author
2020 saw an unprecedented surge in graffiti on Paris’ metro line 6. Every week, new graffitis appeared on this overground line which offers the best open air points of view of the iconic 70s subway cars that are slowly being replaced.
From tags and throwies to whole-cars, the author and amateur photographer features over 300 photographs of works by both exciting new-comers and legendary graffiti-writers as well as one-time street artists.
This clothbound limited edition book invites the reader to enjoy these paintings in the middle of Haussmanian Paris. It also captures the irony, desolation but sometimes whimsy of the early days of Covid-19 and lockdowns.
At the crossroads of both painting and photography, this book accounts for the latest golden era of graffiti on subway cars in Paris.
