There is a spot at 169 bd Vincent Auriol where you can see four large murals at once. Boulevard Vincent Auriol, presqu’au croisement avec la rue du Château-des-Rentiers.
On the far left is a mural by Wen2 and Pakone called “Les Perdrix ” . I’m not sure what “Partridges” have to do with it, but below is a clearer view.
Sitting on the dock. Watching the world? What thoughts could be going through her head? From this angle, the calligraphy on the black and grey mural is also in focus. It is a poem, ‘The Time of Your Life’ by William Saroyan, written in the artist’s own very stylized English script and it covers the entire side of the building. The artist is Cryptik, a Korean-American. I’m sorry that I don’t have a more complete picture of the mural.
The dominant mural in the top picture, the mural with the brightly colored sun is ‘Sun-Daze’ painted in painted April 2019 by Hownosm. How and Nosm (Raoul and Davide Perré) are identical twin brothers. The lower part of the mural is best seen from street level.
At the very top there is an image of man who has turned his head towards the setting sun.
And last, there is the pensive looking Asian woman (Japanese?) who was painted by British artist Hush (with some more of Cryptik’s calligraphy).
”In the time of your life, live –
so that in that good time there shall be no ugliness or death for yourself
or for any life your life touches.
Seek goodness everywhere,
and when it is found, bring it out of it’s hiding place
and let it be free and unashamed”
…. opening lines from “The Time of Your Life”, William Saroyan,
