Glorious Gouzou by Jace on Ponts des Arts
The Ponts des Arts – a parisian bridge that links the Louvre to the left bankside of Paris, has been totally redecorated if I can say so. Indeed, the Paris town hall decided months ago to remove all the love padlocks from the bridge to let space to street art. In fact padlocks weight 45 tonnes of metal and therefore endangered the bridge.
Paris Town Hall, with the help of Mehdi Ben Cheikh – director of the Itinerrance gallery in the 13th district, decided to invite 3 street artists who are: Jace, El Seed, Brusk and Pantonio to paint on 56 pannels (for a total of 150 meters of pure art).
You know how much we love the little Gouzou of Jace? We have been telling our trip to Reunion island a couple of times here…
With his glorious Gouzou, Jace is definitely pulling the leg of all parisians, and people who live in the city – with a nice touch of humor! LoOove them all – they made me smile so much!
We can find every type of Gouzou – like wearing a Moulin Rouge dancers’ costume, asking for a cab, taking photos, taking the metro, finding Space Invaders on Paris’ walls, … and even on a Velib’!
Be quick to take a look before the pieces are removed in October 2015 – and before the’re covered in shitty tags (well, they are already defaced, unfortunately!).
Next, it is gonna be transparent pannels – to avoid tourists to put their love padelocks again on the bridge.
Let’s smile with a few photos below:
