The thing about art is that it is ephemeral. Sometimes what seems progressive on minute is old hat the next. The street artists like banksy, become the next creative institutions.
Be that as it may, I thought I would share a couple of the images I saw throughout the left bank, on buildings and walls and windows. There is the image of the girl. Placed next to Shepard's obey on one wall, she becomes the latest image of big sister watching the Parisian streets. She is definitely a stencil, like andre the giant in "obey." Unlike obey (pictured in the second image up top) she is weeping red over her face, she is something more sinister. Also, in her solo incarnation she bears the tag, "Peru ana ana Peru." This little tag showed up all over Paris. Not sure if it is a female monomer, but it somehow worked with the woman it was written on.
I like to think of thst image of the weeping woman as Ana Peru, Paris's newest patron saint. Ana Peru has come to lead Paris toward a future where women can become world renowned grafitti artists and our street art watches us with compassion rather than commanding us to obey.
