Last night, French street artist Le MoDuLe De ZeeR hit ‘Le M.U.R.’ (Association Modulable, Urbain, Réactif), after the authorised work by Portuguese street artist Vhils was stolen earlier in the week.

The work of VHILS was taken on May 23rd by dastardly midnight marauders. The Le M.U.R. association, which manages the three by eight metre billboad set aside by the city council for the purpose of promoting street art, where Rue Oberkampf meets Rue Saint Maur in the 11th Arrondissement, invited the French street artist also known as LMDLDZR to create a temporary artwork to fill the artistic void.

At One in the morning, the anonymous LMDLDZR started work on his  figurative and abstract graphic-style design, using just black marker pens, managing to fill the white panelled wall in just two hours. He signed the work with a QR code also drawn in his motif pattern style.

The artist is known for his ‘Tic Tac Toe’ street campaign, which can be seen all over Paris, and soon, on walls in New York and London the artist recently revealed to Street Art Paris over a stealthily supped espresso.
