We are a dedicated group of artists/guides. As part of the local artist community, we love sharing our knowledge and the insights of the Parisian art scene. Join us on an alternative adventure that will open your eyes and change the way you look at the city. We built our tours in order to show you the artistic neighbourhood of Belleville, let you discover Vitry-sur-Seine – Street Art Capital of France, share the secrets of the greatest Murals XXL of the 13th arrondissement, explain how the art history influenced the Street Art of Montmartre and learn about the spray paint graffiti during our stroll along Canal de l’Ourcq. Additionally, we are the very first company who developed an original From Louvre to Street Art visit, where we compare the masterpieces with its popular street art versions. If you are interested in contemporary art we also propose Gallery Tour in Le Marais, and if you rather stick with the classics – a traditional Louvre Highlights tour – is also available.
Kasia Klon – artist, tour guide, owner of Street Art Tour Paris
I was born in Poland but started living a nomadic life after turning 20 years old. First travelling with a theatrical group of Grotowski’s students (Generacja 9/11) brought me to Turin, Italy where I stayed for 5 months to study Printmaking and Drawing on Accademia Albertina in 2008. In 2011 I joined the community of artists at Gowanus Studio Space in New York City while doing my internship in Cealum Gallery in Chelsea and working as a freelance graphic designer.
I returned to Poland to receive my MFA with honours from The Strzemiński Academy of Art in Lodz, 2013; with a major in Printmaking and an annexe in Illustration. It was presented at the Best Diplomas of 2013, Prime Time exhibition. I was noticed by international art competitions and have taken part in very interesting projects around the world. Later that year, after following a muralist friend, I moved to Paris and created Street Art Tour Paris – tour-company that educates about Contemporary Urban Art. in 2014 I was named “The most Creative Polish Woman in France” by the Polish expat society of women in France (EmiPolka – Paryski Babiniec).
In 2017-2018 I was one of the selected artists to reside in the most known art-after-squat in the heart of Paris – Rivoli 59.
Currently, I’m still living and working in Paris, the city I genuinely felt in love with through my passion for art and experience in guiding.
