8 a.m. - Writing on the Wall

If you fancy some fresh air with your art, head over to Belleville to rue Dénoyez, rue de l'Ermitage and rue Ramponeau where artists have transformed the plain urban surfaces of the city into fantastical murals with every-evolving street-art.

Known collectively as La Kommune, this group of artists has taken over an abandoned theatre on rue l’Ermitage, covering the interior with graffiti, and a garden on rue Ramponeau where what’s growing is as much a part of the art as what’s showing. If you go on Sunday for an afternoon stroll, you might even seen some graffiti artists at work as the walls morph into their next reincarnation.
