When you come across an entryway like this, it is difficult not to be totally intrigued. Along with the bright colors and intricate details, we also noticed a giant sign that said “free entry.” After taking a few minutes to try and figure out where exactly we were going, we realized this door led to a giant public art studio.
Each floor in this six-level studio had its own unique aesthetic. Some floors even had artists actually working on paintings while we walked through and looked at their work. After seeing a few microwaves and makeshift cots, I think it’s safe to say that some of the artists live in these studios too.
This unexpected find is just another example of a new reason to fall in love with Paris everyday. Granted, I’ve never been to New York City or spent a lot of time in Los Angeles, but I doubt I’d wander into something like walking down the street. I’m so excited for what other little hidden gems I’ll find within the next few months, and I’ll make sure to keep you all updated along the way!
