Paris’s urban art movement started around the 1960s and since then it's blossomed into a street art heaven; with colorful canvases all over the city. The suburbs of the capital, outer arrondissements and center provide local and international artists with incredible spaces to design, paint and create contemporary street art. As one of the European hubs for innovative and colorful art, for centuries, Paris has attracted artists from around the world. With around 130 museums in Paris, there is so much art to see, but what about the local, contemporary art that lies beyond the Louvre, Musée D’Orsay or Musée Rodin? Grab a pair of good walking shoes and peel back the layers of the subculture arts scene of Paris. Be quick though, as eventually, the art will disappear. This very ephemeral quality adds to the works’ mystery and charm. If you are visiting the capital and are a keen art-lover, check out this roundup of the best street art in Paris.
