Ménilmontant

"Ménilmontant" is a neighbourhood in the 20th arrondissement located on a hill close to Belleville. This painted wall was created by artist Jerome Mesnager known for its "white men". The sentence "c'est nous les gars de Ménilmontant" is taken from an old song by Maurice Chevalier.

An artsy, wonderful way to decorate an otherwise boring, ugly brick wall!

Sweet! Is that a Matisse reference I'm picking up?

I agree with Fiona. It reminds me Matisse too!

I have this song sing by Charles Aznavour!

Ce mur est très beau poétiquement, ainsi cette prise de vue.
