Belleville Surprise

Maurice is not a fan of chinese food so when I get the chance I go with a friend exploring Paris and finding good places to eat chinese food. I think I could eat it every day. Lately my friend and I have been trying various restaurants in the Belleville area-it’s packed with them. One evening as we were headed for yet another eating adventure these artistic renderings caught my eye.


So true. I am not showing the whole drawing-a lady about to eat a cockroach for some reason.


It’s hard to tell from this photo but this painting is huge, covering the side of a building.


I thought there were real men putting this sign up at first. The sign says something like watch what you say.


Close up of one of the “men”.

PS-keep leaving a comment on my blog under Blog Anniversary Giveaway! I’ll do the drawing on April 29th.

  1. So are the men just painted or are they actual figures? I love paintings on the side of buildings. I don’t know why architects don’t plan buildings that way.

  2. I would love to see that entire Eating is Serious drawing. I would like a copy of it. Was it on a wall, too or framed somewhere? I am intrigued.

  3. You know I do like that one of the gentleman with the hat on — infact it looks like a pastel painting!

  4. I had a fantastic chinese with my friend Elizabeth in Rue cler the first night I got there last August, even went back on my own.. 🙂

  5. They both are so awesome, but the second one had me fooled thinking it was an actual guy up there!
    Food and art are both serious and wonderful things!:)

  6. I have to agree with your hubby – not really interested in Chinese food. Now had you said Indian restaurants, well that would be right up my alley.

    And does anyone do graffiti half as good as the French? I think not. And thank you for not sharing the cockroach eating scene!
