Leo et Pipo


I found this charming ( although now faceless) little man quite by accident. I looked up Leo and Pipo when I got home and found that it's two artists that paste these charming figures, from times gone by, around Paris. When I get back to Paris, I'm going to search out more of their work!
To see more images go here.

I love their choice of font, too ~ adds to the old world charm.

Aha .. Paris's version of Banksy

What I like about the Leo & Pipa people is that they're life size—though I suppose it could be disconcerting to happen across them late at night.

Je ne connaissais pas Leo et Pipo! Maintenant, c'est fait!

I shall have my eyes peeled too ... although there is sooo much to be alert to ... I just want it to wash over me ... not there yet, but I already know that a week in Paris is not enough.

WEll I think some of there work may be life size but this little man was down near the sidewalk and I almost missed him. I love their work. I want to find more!!!!

I saw one of these on a building down the Champs Elysee, just past McDonalds, I did wonder what it was!

Leo et Pipo must be the parisian answer to London's 'Banksy'.

I'm wondering if this was Leo or Pipo who was decapitated!
