The cat-obsessed street artist M. Chat is on trial after refusing to pay a graffiti fine for spraying murals in Paris’s Châtelet metro stop.

I saw this cat all over the wall of Paris, one in the Chåtelet station (the one you see at the top of the article, when you click on the link) was a usual landmark on my evening commute.

Street Art documentary (Full)

Just some more food for thought. It’s somewhat lengthy but this video presents some interesting discussion from multiple artists on their views of street art vs. graffiti, political meaning and what it means to be an artist on the street. 

A lauded and much-respected cult figure in a bi-coastal subculture that comprises skaters, graffiti artists, and West Coast surfers, Barry McGee was born in 1966 in California, where he continues to live and work. In 1991, he received a BFA in painting and printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute. His drawings, paintings, and mixed-media installations take their inspiration from contemporary urban culture, incorporating elements such as empty liquor bottles and spray-paint cans, tagged signs, wrenches, and scrap wood or metal.
