Paris, a global street art capital

The first wave of street art
According to Samantha Longhi, editor of the Paris-based Graffiti Art Magazine, the French capital was a leader in the emergence of street art, starting in the 60s with pasted-up posters followed by the first stencil artists like Jef Aérosol emerging in the 1980s – much earlier than many other cities around the world. Aérosol’s work decorates the urban landscapes of Europe and the US, as well as the Great Wall of China. The artist’s 350sqm stencilled mural entitled Chuuutt!!! (Shh!), located just next to the Pompidou Centre, was created in 2011. (Kim Laidlaw Adrey)
