Paris Was Smokin' Hot: Does Shares his Thoughts and Photos
Dutch graffiti artist Does, recently went on a trip to France for the Chelles Battle Pro Festival. He is the co-founder of the LoveLetters crew and a member of theIronlak Europe Team. His ridiculous technical ability make his work nearly unparalleled today. On his blog he shared his thoughts and photos from his recent trip.
“Last weekend I was in Paris for Chelles Battle Pro. After a 3 hour train ride I arrived in Paris Gare du Nord and right away the police came at me….’Do you have a knife? Do you smoke? Are you from Amsterdam?’. I guess that’s what you get when you walk around with freshly washed jeans, white sneakers and an Ironlak hoodie! With a group of seven – Ces, Mutha, Smug, Sawer, Ioye, Shadow – we roamed the streets of Paris and painted in an abandoned factory. My thanks go out to Shadow for a greatly organised trip, for showing us around Paris and for the memorable red red red French wine. Hope to be back next year.”
