Street artists take over! Tour Paris 13!

A Parisian tower block has been overtaken by 80 of the best street artists in the world. How incredible is that?

The block which is in Paris’ so called 13th District has been named Tour Paris 13 by  Galerie Itinerrance‘s owner Medhi Ben Cheikh. It was he who decided to unite these artists from 16 countries across the world to take part in this colourful exhibition.

The exhibit is free to go to and is open till the 31st of this month. I need to book a Eurostar to Paris for the day!

Although it’s only open for one month, as the block will be demolished at that point it, the artists don’t seem to have held back, instead what they seem to have created is a breath-taking and magical portrayal of just about anything from the political issues in Syria to massive portraits on the walls.

The building which has 36 apartments and 10 stories high was obviously of great excitement to these artists who have created these awe-inspiring pieces.

I’ve taken this photographs of some of the artists work from the Daily Mail website:
