housing tower in Paris’ 13th arrondissement has been converted into
a temporary street art temple by 100 artists, creating the largest graffiti
exhibition in the world.
As part of
the Tour 13 project, the exterior
of the nine-storey building and the 36 apartments within have been transformed by
artists Vhils and C215, among other high profile names, and is accessible to
the public until the end of October, before the tower’s demolition in
Tour 13 (5 rue Fulton) is free between midday and 8pm every
day except Monday.
