French graffiti artists Sowat (DMV) and Lek, invited 40 urban artists to paint an abandoned supermarket in the north of Paris since they discovered the great, decayed building in summer 2011! Just to make it clear, imagine an old, four storey supermarket and dozens of talented graffiti artists who paint and paint an paint…and film the results!
Including stuff by Apotre, Bims, Blo, Bom.k, Boyane, Brusk, Deap, Dem189, Fléo, Gris1, Hobz, Honda, Jayone, Jaws, Kan, Katre, Monsieur Qui, O’clock, Onde, Outside, Rems, Romi, Sambre, Seth, Siao, Skio, Smo, Spei, Swiz and Tcheko, the building has now become – similar to the Ghostvillage or Underbelly Project – an illegal artistic residency.
Recently Sowat an Lek published their self-made documentary about the place and its new graffiti look. It’s just unbelievable!
