Mausolée an underground undertaking of epic proportions

One of the most monumental street art undertakings ever essembled, Lek and Sowat stumbled upon an abandoned supermarket in the north of Paris and for one year under complete secrecy dedicated their time to their art form, they wandered throughout this 430,000 sq ft space to paint murals and organise illegal artistic endeavours. Lek and Sowat invited only French graffiti artists to contribute, this consisted of artists from the first generation to the last generation of this dying art form. Lek and Sowat also managed to record their huge undertaking and were kind enough to share it to the world, sit back and enjoy this homage to graffiti!

Recent street Art Work

Faith has just recently completed a work titled “’the hearts lonely thunder’ in Tel Aviv, Israel. The image of the distressed horse trying to break free from its restraints is incredibly powerful – a struggle perhaps? Appropriate as to the location of the piece, this resonates throughout her work.

Faith47’s Street Art Blog

Check out the info section of faiths blog: Faiths images reconstruct lost objects, broken-down cars, old factories and dusty side roads of forgotten towns. She investigates how humans interact with their environment, what scratches and memories they leave behind. Her interactions resonate with our fragility, with our innate understanding of symbols, dreams, textures and inevitable impermanence (Faith47.com).
