I like the little texts of this artist displayed in the streets of Paris, Yaseen Khan is a painter, actor and French poet of Indian origin.
He exhibits daily in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district1. His art questions passers-by and strollers from here and elsewhere about their relationship to life. For those who don't speak French : "to love is cake, being loved is the cherry on the cake" lovely isn't It ?♥

Question of the day ... In your opinion, why the macaroons are round?
There is a legend around the round shape. The history of the macaroon says that a monk used to knead almond paste with his shirt off. One day, very tired, he fell from exhaustion and left a mark of his navel on the dough. At this point, the button took the shape of a circle.
This lovely wall is located in my favourite sopt of Paris : Abesses district . Le Mur des je t'aime is a 40 m² mural composed of 612 enamelled lava tiles reproducing 311 “I love you” in 250 languages. "I love you" in all common languages, but also in rare or forgotten dialects such as Navajo, Inuit, Bambara or Esperanto.
Whether in art deco, art nouveau or belle epoque style, they capture our eyes with their beautiful illustrations and architectural details. This list is far from being exhaustive but they will certainly make you want to go buy a baguette or a pastry just to admire the decor inside !
