Urban Art (aka Street Art) - A Perspective of Paris
THE PRESENTATION WILL BE IN FRENCH AND ENGLISH
ALSO PRESENT WILL BE TWO STREET & URBAN ARTISTS and STREET ART TOUR GUIDE
This Storytelling Evening features Deborah Gallin who will share her passion for and knowledge about Urban Art and Street Art in Paris. She will be accompanied by Arnaud Liard, French Street & Urban Artist (www.arnaud-liard.com/), Virginie Fromentin, Licensed Tour Guide providing Street Art and Graffiti tours in Paris (www.facebook.com/virginiefrom/) and Jean Jerome, French Street and Urban Artist (www.jeanjerome.com). All three will be happy to answer your questions about this movement, their involvement, and experiences.
Fascinated by this art form, Deborah has developed an awareness and sensitivity that she wants to share: “It can be surprising, amusing, romantic, a political comment or play on words…it’s always unexpected and can make me stop in my tracks…almost whatever it is, it adds pleasure and often beauty to daily life!”. I can attest to this as Deborah took me on an unexpected discovery walk where my eyes were opened to art I was unaware of and that, in reality, is all around me. With a creative bent from a young age, Deborah grew up in Southern California amid furnishings and art work that still qualify as modern or contemporary, beginning with the Scandinavian furniture and impasto paintings. Her career in San Francisco, New York and Paris put her at the core of creative problem-solving environments where Deborah was an active partner with some of the top graphic designers in these cities. Deborah will give a multi-media presentation that is sure to open your eyes to the creativity and art that surrounds us even as we walk the streets of Paris.
Here are some questions she will field along with Arnaud and Virginie during her presentation and she welcomes more.
