Grandes Moulins des Paris – Graff’d

Tags : 

Quick evening post tonight.

I’ve seen a lot of totally awesome graffiti / street art in abandoned places. Some really intricate astounding pieces, both small and large with awesome placement, sympathetic to the surroundings. I’ve also see a lot of tagging – simple marker or paint sprays daubed and repeated all over the place in a location, like a dog marking its territory, simply destroying the environment.

Unfortunately GMdP was in the latter category. All of the lower floors were covered. Not so much the higher levels as they are not particularly accessible, unless the hapless artist has a death wish. This is from the ground floor near our exit. My colleague was out of the door so I had to be pretty quick with this one!

Love this composition. The door within a door within a door is awesome, and the splash of colour adds a bit of extra interest…nice work!

Cool depth and detail Mark! The colors pop out of the screen! Have to appreciate decent art when you see it! Nice job!

Awesome sense of depth in this image Mark. I agree with you – I hate it when people just leave graffiti for the sake of putting obscenities on the wall.

Gives me that feeling of holding a mirror up in front of a mirror, like it is going to keep going and going. Awesome shot!

Love the repeating door “pattern”. Awesome texture going on in the foreground.
