WOOL @ TOUR PARIS 13

Project by Marie du 13e and Galerie Itinerrance

By WOOL | Covilhã Urban Art Festival

"In January of 2013, WOOL was invitated to form a group of Portuguese urban
artists to participate in what was promised to be the 'largest exhibition ever
held, of Street Art'., named Tour of Paris 13, a
project by the Mairie du 13e Paris, coordinated by Mehdi Ben Cheikh, Director
of Galerie Itinerrance. With volunteer work of
participants that during many months would worked inside the tower (and
occasionally outside) in the most utmost secret; only was revealed to the
public during the month of October.

 This tower, with a total of 4.500m2,
divided by 10 floors (36 flats) and located in one of the most dynamic
neighbourhoods in Paris, which was just waiting for its destruction, as part of a project to modernize the
municipal housing, became a colossal temporary museum of Street Art, open to
all for free and without any commercial approach, was a tribute to this type of
Art."

"The invitation
originated a challenge to a group of artists, which intended to aggregate
several generations and spirits of the national Urban Art and portrait from
Graffiti to the stencil, all the languages, and / or techniques commonly
referred to post-graffiti, with contemporary influences of figurative
illustration. The challenge was accepted by all and it took four 'pilgrimages' to
the number 5 of Rue Fulton, where the interventions of (and alphabetically) ADD
FUEL, CORLEONE, EIME, KRUELLA D'ENFER, ±MAISMENOS±, MAR, MÁRIO BELÉM,
PANTÓNIO, PAULO ARRAIANO, SAMINA and VHILS, gradually occupied
completely and strategically the 2nd floor of the Tour Paris 13, according to
stylistic criteria that guaranteed the legitimacy of their individualities. 

 The affectionately
called “Portuguese floor” was “the key point to achieve the
success of this project”, as still stated today by the mentor Mehdi Ben
Cheikh."
