“Belleville Murals” – Giuliana Mariniello


“Belleville Murals” – Giuliana Mariniello  This is a selection of photos of murals I took in Paris while I was staying there for one of my exhibitions. They were taken in the multicultural and colourful area of Belleville, which has become famous also thanks to Daniel Pennac books, with the saga of the Malaussène family set in this cosmopolitan quartier. Now Belleville is a centre for artists and writers and one of the most vivacious areas of Paris. I was attracted by the murals as expression of street art with multiple layers of graffiti, images, writings  and paintings.
