Tags in Paris

Tagging in Paris plays a big role in my contemporary urban manuscript, White Sky of Paris.
Trucks are tagged and metallic security gates are tagged and the high parts of buildings are tagged.   There are different types of tags in Paris.  What you see on this truck has a NY influence but pochoirs are Parisian.  Here is a pochoir (stencil) from the artist NEMO.  See an article about him HERE where I got this picture

Keith Harring became famous for his underground graffitti like many Parisian pochoir artists,  MISSTIC and Blek the Rat.

The protagonist, Jake, in White Sky of Paris falls into night-time tagging raids throughout Paris.
