Le Panier: Bizzarre Outdoor Art Gallery

Le Panier: Bizzarre Outdoor Art Gallery

Le Panier is a vibrant multicultural district of Marseille with a long history. Nowadays, in this emblematic district you can find some souvenir shops, painting galleries, small design boutique, tiny multicultural restaurants; bars… small squares where you can sit surrounding by the old nice and decadent colorful buildings… But one of the most striking things about Le Panier is all the street art, found in every alley, nook and cranny.

Love is all what we need in this world. I would like to have it painted in my neighbourhood.

Some of them are really beautiful, other just strange human expressions. Different artists are present on the walls of Le Panier. It is a really enjoyable walk without no direction or course rather than discovering these paintings in a surprise way. Frescos murals, graffiti, tags, stencils, collages…

Actually you can even hire a Street Art Tour with local artists. They offer you another way to discover this rich place full of history and culture, sharing their passion for urban art and presenting the works of local and international 

I have a lot of pictures to share. But I believe it would be better you take a train to Marseille to hang out around Le Panier and discover by yourself this amazing outdoor gallery.
