I suppose that these days with security cameras all over the place the artists just don't have time for detailed work. We get a lot of them in the city and I think most of them are printed off so that the artist doesn't lose the original.
We get a lot of 'tagging' which is basically just vandalism imo...the people doing it not really producing more than a hasty scrawl....the objective seems to just cover as many things as possible (difficult to get at places being the most desirable apparently). I wouldn't mind so much if the work was as beautiful as some of the images on this thread.
Yes, DaCruz works mostly in the 19th arrondissement, and most of these items are along rue de l'Ourcq. The series with the lion and the elephants are all along the old "petite ceinture" railway line and begin at avenue Jean Jaurès.
