Imaginary Worlds exhibition by Speedy Graphito at the Musée en Herbe until 2nd January 2022

Veteran Parisian street artist Speedy Graphito is showing of his colourful and slightly bonkers world at the Musée en Herbe, a great activity to do as a family if you’re visiting Paris over the holiday season…

We first saw Speedy Graphito’s work at the end of the 1980s in Paris, when he used to stick mini-flyers of his iconic corkscrew-head man on walls all over the city. Apparently he’s been very busy ever since, honing his everything-but-the-kitchen-sink style full of pop culture references, falling somewhere between Keith Haring, Banksy and Space Invader, with more than a hint of Walt Disney.

The common thread for all his work is colour – it is everywhere and it is bold! You’ll see references from films, cartoons, comics, video games… Get your sunglasses ready!

For this new exhibition Mondes Imaginaires (Imaginary Worlds), forty pieces are on display in “a totally immersive and intergenerational presentation” which will help you understand better where the artist gets his inspiration and how he works.

It’s also a great visit to do as a family if you’re in town over the school holidays. There are even workshops for kids available. Just make sure that you book your entrance tickets online (it’s obligatory) here.
