“Wall of Love” commemorates Paris Attacks
In an effort to heal and bring peace to their neighborhood, residents of the 10th Arrondissement of Paris invited street and graffiti artists to paint on a blocklong wall near two cafes that were attacked.
Starting from a local mother – Diana Kami – experiencing the urge to paint the walls nearby Le Petit Cambodge and Le Carillon following the attacks, the community wide initiative ‘Dessine-Moi un Bouquet” organized itself to allow this specific street art. It invited street and graffiti artists, as well as local residents and children, to cover the wall with images in response to the attacks.
The wall, nicknamed “Wall of Love” appears to have a welcomed calming effect on the neighborhood, inviting people to reclaim this bothscarred and familiar space. Several artwork also aim to send messages of fraternity, such as Mr Novo paintings’ claiming that “we are all children of France”.
