Monsieur Chat

Monsieur Chat

I’m not a huge cat fan though I don’t have any issues with them. I have a weim so that places me firmly in the dog camp. But before I digress into a cat vs. dog thing I’ll stop while I’m ahead and mention the above sighting of Monsieur Chat. I’m not sure if this has been up for five days or five years. I started taking a new walk route to work and noticed it almost immediately. A couple days after the first sighting I took a pic and placed it on flickr. Not knowing anything about it I didn’t think much of the posting. Within a couple hours one of my flickr contacts posted a comment mentioning that the image is part of Monsieur Chat. It’s an interesting learning process for me in terms of street art. There’s a balance between exploration: walking around, discovering and taking pictures of things that are interesting, and learning: research, listening to other people’s stories and relying on the internet to get more info. I think it’s damn difficult keeping up with who’s who – but when you discover something new with a compelling story it’s worth the effort.
