Paris Street Art

Secret Paris: Hidden Street Art

For me, Paris is not the first city I think of when it comes to street art. Berlin yes, London of course, but not Paris. And yet, so I found out a few weeks ago, there is a lot of public art to admire in the City of Lights. Especially in the 13th district, on and around La Butte-aux-Cailles. In this village-like hilltop neighbourhood, far away from the noises of traffic and tourists, you can find lots of street art in many different shapes and sizes. Time for a photo tour!





I loved this small installation of a duck.
Funny stencil piece referring to Apple’s Siri.
A friendly local pointed this one out to me, otherwise I would have walked past it without noticing it was there.
Somehow the street art just blends in with the neighbourhood, as strange as that may sound.




You find these stencil pieces by Miss.Tic all over Paris – I love them.
Who spots this very discreet piece of work?
Onto more street art discoveries!

Want To Go?
La Butte-aux-Cailles is not difficult to find, but you do need to know where to go. The easiest way to get there is probably by metro (that is, if you’re not in the area already). You hop on line 6 and get off at the station that’s called Corvisart. There you take the exit on your lefthand side. You’ll see a big (ugly) building in front of you that has a wide opening you can walk through, leading you to the other side of the building. There you walk up the stairs and once you’ve made it all the way up, you follow the lane leading you to la Rue des Cinq Diamants and into the heart of la Butte-aux-Cailles. Oh, and if you haven’t had lunch yet, don’t forget to pop into Chez Gladines for a tasty meal, it’s right there on the corner.

La Butte-aux-Cailles, 75013, Paris. Metro: Line 6, Corvisart station.

Happy exploring!

  1. I saw a lot of street art when we were in the 13th arondissement this weekend, but we were to limited in time to go and explore more. We definitely love street art! We did an alternative berlin tour last year, and we totally loved it! Will consider this in a next trip to Paris! Thanks for all the tips you’ve given me so far!


  2. Paris, mon amour! I like Paris so much. I have seen a couple of them during my stay in December. I love that kind of art. Thanks for showing us this other side of Paris.
