New York Metro Paper Glorifies Parisian Graffiti and Street Art Scene
The Metro Newspaper has recently published an article about the Parisian Graffiti and Street Art scene. In the article, the Metro notes that the Parisian scene seems to have a leg up on the scene in New York in quality and quantity. One reason for the quantity the article notes is that certain areas in Paris seem to be cherishing their graffiti and street art locals by not prosecuting them when they get caught.
“Hami Delimi of L’Oeuf Creative an agency helping artists with branding and representation says that many communities agree not to prosecute, particularly their native sons and daughters. “People are proud to have the artists there,” Delimi says. “However, if someone not from the community writes over a piece, that person might get in trouble.”
