The Mischievous Street Art of Levalet

The Paris based street artist known as Levalet has an especially playful style of street art.  He creates life-sized wheat paste posters of people that seem to be interacting with the surrounding neighborhood, some playful and others more mischievous.  While many may travel through urban areas such as Paris noticing little on their commute, Levalet's subjects are continually interacting with the surroundings.  In a way, they shed a light on the relationship between the city and its inhabitants as well as the potential for play through interruption.  Perhaps Levalet may slow down your commute and even inspire an idea. See more of his pieces after the jump.
