When the words “graffiti” and “school” are used together in a sentence, they usually describes an offense carried out by a delinquent student.
But at the Cité Internationale Universitaire in Paris, France, the words describe breathtaking works of art that can be seen inside one of its dormitories — all of which were not only allowed, but encouraged by the school!
The student residence needed renovations, so the school brought in nearly 100 graffiti artists and let them make any changes they wanted.
The artists worked their magic there for three weeks as part of Rehab 2, an urban festival that took place between June and July.
And when they were done with it…
…the entire dorm was transformed into a gorgeous and unique gallery.
As breathtaking as it is, though, it’s only meant to be temporary.
People can visit and see all the works of art for themselves right now…
…but come next month, they’ll be removed as the school begins renovating the dorm.
It’s really too bad that they can’t stay up, but as they say, beauty is fleeting.
For now, at least, visitors can enjoy them all they want.
Anyone have a spare plane ticket to Paris?
