Street Art with a Dash of Parisienne Sauce

An overview of the interactive tour in the 13th district

On March 27th, Swipecity lands in the 13th arrondissement of Paris.

Paris! The city of lights. The city of love. World heritage city… but did you know that it was also a city of street art?

Come live the experience of an open-air museum in the streets of the 13th arrondissement by exploring the street artworks and murals of Paris.

With the Swipecity app, discover astonishing (but always relevant) anecdotes, on the artists — both French and international — their creative process and their pieces. Their work makes art available to all, but also adorns the city, boosts its economy and helps travelers and locals discover it from a different angle.

Whether you are an amateur or a connoisseur, all you need is a bit of curiosity to be blown away! Art calls upon your senses, your emotions, and intuition… let your imagination and perception wander and fully enjoy yourself.
