More Murals in the Best Street Art District in Paris

Belleville has received a lot of attention for its graffiti, but the 13th arrondissement has definitely taken over as the best place in Paris to see world class murals and artworks by international street artists.

Here are the ones that I pass on my 6k run through the neighborhood (this doesn’t even cover all of the street art in the Butte aux Cailles):
