Leo and Pipo Paris

Leo and Pipo are the names of two graffiti artists whose work can be found in various locations all over Paris.  They use vintage photographs so of course I love seeing what they put up.  I've only seen their work a handful of times and on this past trip, I only found one but it was on the first day, so it seemed like a good omen.

It was on the back of a metal sign, located a few blocks away from the Gare de Lyon train station, near the canal.
It was a row of old-fashioned gentlemen:

There was other graffiti nearby of a more traditional style.
Personally, I prefer the vintage photographs to the spray painted lettering but that's just me.  You can read more about them here.
