Mimi The Clown aka King Mimi is now online on StreetLove, after 4 new paste up we found in these last weeks in Paris, mostly in the 4th and 20th district.

King Mimi the Clown

Mimi the ClowN

“After studying knife-throwing and as a failed tap-dancer I started to take an interest in the world of show business, circus and masks. By going to the SUPERmaRket, by watching TV, by listening to politicians and slaving away every day for a few euros I realised that the show went much further than the stage that used to fascinate me. It was everywhere. Everywhere!! With intelligent giraffes, elephants and poodles!! Zebra tamers, acrobats but above all clowns. A countless number of ClowNs, everywhere! Wooooow, isn’t (real) life magic!

6 and a 1/2 years of internments as well as of exhibitionS in every clinic in France later AND still I go on PAINTING. Painting that is intentionally miLITAnt, offhand and concession free ($$$$).”

(We assume that) Mimi The Clown is from Lille, north of France, and we already planned to go there for the artists opening days, next october. See you there!
