Entire school painted over in the course of three weeks, 100 artists were given free reign to take over a dormitory in Paris, making it their canvas. As part of the Rehab 2 festival, the graffiti artists were invited to paint the interior of a student residence at the Cité Internationale Universitaire in Paris. The space was then open to the public for one month prior to renovation works, which will wipe out the artwork.
It’s not uncommon for graffiti artists to take advantage of abandoned spaces to release their creativity, making the festival a natural evolution in how visitors experience this type of art. Though the dormitory will soon disappear, photographers have documented the space, creating a lasting visual document. Jonk Photography uploaded a huge selection of images that allow us to experience the space even if you can’t make it over to Paris.
