Madame (Moustache) Paris exhibition vernissage

A vernissage-cum-soirée with Madame (Moustache) at clothing shop, d’Hotel Manufacture, last night and a meeting of two of Paris’ most talked about wheatpaste street artists.

Madame wears no moustache, rather, she is feminine and attractive in tight denim jeans. Fred le Chevalier, the first knight of Paris street art, a fan, was also on hand, giving support – both artists currently working hardest at decorating Paris’ public spaces.

The intent of these photos, taken by Richard Beban & Paris Play, is to honour Madame’s stylistic conceit for the black and white in her artwork. Some of the photos are by Guetteur Urbain.

The artworks on display: a mixture of collage and painting - Madame using posters with the addition of her distinctive moustachioed logo stenciled on afterwards using spray paint. Her street art uses the medium of the paste-up to its fullest effect.
