Artist 1010 Paints a Giant Gaping Hole Illusion Along a Parisian Highway 

1010 is currently in Paris, France where he spent the last week working on a giant piece along the Parisian highway.
Geared with 400 liters of paint, it took about seven days for the German artist to paint this 4500 square meters artwork. Mind-boggling!
1010 is reproducing a 3D technique on the flat. Even though they’re being painted on concrete, these pieces look real enough to reach inside and touch some color. This was made possible with the help of Itinerrance Gallery and SEMPA.  Thanks to Street Art News and Junk Culture


Obey/Shepard Fairey @ the Eiffel Tower, 2015

“Earth Crisis”, an environmentally themed giant sphere hung between the first and second floor of the  Eiffel Tower.
Visible from November 20 to 26, it is a strong artistic gesture to Paris which will be hosting the COP21 world conference on climate change. This was made possible with the help of Gallerie Itinerrance.
The Earth Crisis Globe is a mandala designed to provide a unified ornamental structure that evokes floral motifs and harmony with nature.  Housed within the mandala’s shields are images that symbolize both threats to nature and incitement to respect it.  The mandala images, composed of climate change and environmentally themed graphics, are positioned to raise awareness and provoke discussions about the Earth’s future.  The colors used in the globe design connect blue and green of air, water, and vegetation that allow the earth to sustain life.
