French street art duo Ella & Pitr create Colossal Sky-High Murals
Street art duo Ella & Pitr have the cutest little love story. They first met while pasting up paper murals in the streets of Saint Etienne back when Ella was a comedian and Pitr was a graffiti writer. Today, Ella & Pitr use a combination of Indian ink, paper, and glue to create rooftop murals that reflect their own 'contemporary vision of humanity'. Their work highlights ordinary people (the old, the tired, the sad), facing the world's darkness.

This is so random and not really important to it at all, but do you know if they get permission to use these spaces? @danidee LIke you said, it's surprising that no one got in their way for such large murals

@onesmile You know, I'm actually not sure. They've never made a point of saying in anything I've read or watched about them. I know that when these artists first met, they were definitely going into places they weren't allowed, but I'm not sure if, as they got more popular, more people were willing to offer them sites to work with.

@danidee I feel like it is possible that they did start getting "let in" to these places, you're right. I was just curious :)
