Chalk. Cows. Street Art. Paris. Philippe Baudelocque.
I love the texture he’s able to create, both within the patterns themselves and the overall splotchy feel of the steer- but my favorite part about it is the scale. It just hits you when you walk by it- you just can’t ignore it.
The crazy thing about Philippe’s art is its ephemerality. With chalk as his medium, losing his previous works is inevitable. I know he makes no attempt to preserve his creations at all. I Googled his name, and saw that he created a hippo, a hedgehog, a buffalo, and a frog… all in this same exact spot.
See? Every one of the above pictures scavenged from Google was art in that same location in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris. Maybe I’ll be on the art hunt from here on out… Has anyone else every seen Philippe or his art? Has anyone heard of him before? What are some of the best places in Paris to find street art? We just totally lucked out. I am now a huge fan. Let me know your thoughts! À la prochaine,
