French artist, Mathieu Tremblin saw something in the streets with which he disagreed. He noticed that many underpasses, city building walls and random pillars were plastered with the markings of graffiti. Illegible tags in varying shapes and sizes were plentiful as he roamed the streets of his city.
Mathieu did not like that these works of street art seemed unorganized, less than intentional and rarely legible. In response to his distaste for the unfiltered and not so traditionally beautiful art that lines the walls he observed, the French artist took to the streets himself to changed the scenery.
Painting over the previously “unkempt” graffiti Tremblin reworked the tags in his own way. Leaving the original tag lines yet, being sure that they were perfectly able to be read and in a highly structured manner, Tremblin relined the previously less than neat walls with clean reworkings in his own unique way.
Controversial, yes. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Art is malleable. There is no right or wrong when it comes to artistic expression. Scroll through Tremblin’s renovations and see what you think about his street graffiti overhaul!
