Honet ’s new mural in Paris

Il murale di HoNet a Parigi

In April, Art Azoï, the French association which works for the promotion of artistic creation in public spaces, invited Honet for creating something new on Pavillon Carré de Baudouin’s wall.
It is located in the 20th arrondissement of Paris, on the right bank of the River Seine and it’s inspired by the city and the neighborhood history. In a special way, the artist insists on the ritual of Carnival, a celebration during which social hierarchies are inverted.

On the left of the mural, a roundabout made by a couple and columns represent the Pavillon de Buttes Chaumont. It is rounded by black stripes that form some kind of light rays. In this way, the couple seems a lighthouse, like a new point of reference for the city. On the right, 3 little figures with long black coats follow a lot of strange characters like a clown, a fat ox, a trumpeter, a king with two faces. In front of this parade a woman stands upon a black ball, she’s the Nation.

The entire paint is in black and with, except for a yellow smile, which represents the present so connected to digital symbols.
