Paris shows off its rich grafittis culture

I always thought the French capital lived up to its reputation for being the most immaculate city in the world until I came across an interseting art project from Fondation Cartier, which convinced the hell out of me that those shipshape Parisians in fact do have an unsupressable interest in street art.

As part of the project called Grafitti Taxonomy, Evan Roth took photos of nearly all grafittis in Paris and then created what’s called a graffiti analysis software, which allows him to tag and visualise different styles of graffitis and make them all available for a public view online.

Take a look at a piece of the action below.
