"painters, does it look like ?" Street Artists Tip by sachara

Street Artists, Paris: 30 reviews and 45 photos


Paris will not be Paris without the painting artists in the streets. Especially at the Place du Tertre in
Montmartre and the bridges near the Ile de Cité you can't miss them. Mostly lots of people are standing around the painting artist to look if the painting looks like the 'model'.

The artists have all their own style, making caricature drawings to a natural looking paintings. Some of the paintings are extremily good look-alikes, but some images could also depict anyone around or one of my neighbours at home.
