street art in paris PART 4

here are some images of some of jef aerosol‘s stencils

he is prolific here in paris (and in his own right) but lives now in lille and perhaps my favourite stencil artist (besides banksy of course). he makes a lot of portraits of famous rock stars and other celebrities and in addition a lot of lovely detailed figures in various poses.

the artist works usually in black and gray tones with his trademark red arrow punctuations.  to me he has a simple and very clear visual style which i really appreciate.  i think a sophisticated play with simplicity is important!  both in life and art. (more of his work in my previous post).

my favourite

found in the same area as these (around the 20eme arrondissement) and also in the le marais area, among other locations, can be found the stencil work of lézarts janaundjs.  much more colourful, this work includes a similar measure of detail and skill as aerosol and can be found almost as frequently (in my experience).

again, all photos are my own so please seek permission before reproducing. thanks!
