Galerie Itinerrance and Street Art 13 are back for a new season and the adventure continues this year with two new frescoes that have just appeared on boulevard Vincent Auriol. These new works mark the return of two artists, D*Face and Pantónio, in the 13th district of Paris.
D*FACE “Turncoat” mural can be found on 155 boulevard Vincent Auriol 75013 Paris. For his second fresco in Paris, D*Face once again invested the 13th. His first mural is located on Place Pinel, the artist has now painted a new artwork on the boulevard to showcase a monumental work. The two buildings are almost opposite from each other and are both visible from the metro.
The great thing about going back to the same corner is that people recognize what we did the first time. So we have a new and different interaction, which is always captivating. says D * Face to Street Art 13.
The two frescoes open a dialogue. Love apart , the fresco painted in the spring of 2017, represented lovers. This time, with Turncoat the woman is alone and in close-up. This three-quarter portrait focuses on his expression: his gaze defies us.
She is dominant, almost angry. The female figure here has a different power: only she shows that she is not vulnerable! – he says
This is the reproduction on wall of the painting Turncoat , here on 25 meters high and 15 meters wide. This grandiose work stands out in all of D*Face’s work. Indeed, the portrait is made from a colour scheme around the blue colour, while the majority of its parts is based on a plurality of colours.
What differs from the couple of the Place Pinel is the loneliness of the character. This time, our heroine does not depend on any man: the young woman is alone and freed from any romantic relationship. According to the artist, it is up to the spectators to interpret his paintings, it is their look that gives meaning to his works!
Familiar with Paris, PANTONIO put his marks many times around the capital including LE MUR. This time he returns with his brand new mural titled “Fragile Agile” that can be spotted on 89 Boulevard Vincent Auriol 75013 Paris.
After having made Piazza Veneto the largest wall of street art in Europe culminating at 66 meters high, the Portuguese artist Pantónio settled at 89 boulevard Vincent Auriol. His new creation, features birds of dazzling grace and obvious delicacy.
For his second fresco in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, the native of the Azores had to deal with a singular difficulty: the wall is atypical. Indeed, because of its pyramidal structure in several stages, the building is articulated mainly around two horizontal bands. But the muralist sees it more as the expression of a solution than of a problem:
It would be even more difficult if I had a square and white wall to paint. Without relief or irregularity, I can not play with space. Here, the originality of the surface offers me the solution.
Despite the fragmentation of several pieces of the medium to be painted, the Azorean artist speaks of fluidity about his latest work. Its first Parisian wall, near the Porte de Choisy, was located further back, away from the movements of the city. The composition was organized around the notion of verticality, put forward by the circulation of fish throughout the height of the building. On the contrary, this second realization exacerbates the idea of horizontality. Indeed, this fresco is the result of the regular passage of residents along the boulevard Vincent Auriol. It is also an echo of the vehicles that circulate there and the subway trains that overlook it. Like a reflection, the animals of Pantónio thus marry the same movement as the travelers of line 6. However,
Through the movements of his animals with soft curves and slender, Pantónio gave to see his eyes on this portion of the boulevard Vincent Auriol. Between youth and movements, the artist has brought his dense and moving compositions that appeal to the dream world of childhood.
