Paris is booming with Street Art this summer and the newest piece to be born in the city comes from Jace.
The Reunion Island-based artist took inspiration from an old-school video game known as Donkey Kong, an arcade game that was Nintendo’s first big hit in North America. It marked the beginning of the Mario series games, and introduced several of the earliest characters, including Mario himself.
Jace remixed this iconic symbol with some of his signature anthropomorphic characters known as Gouzou. The piece took three days to paint and was made possible with the help of Gallery Matgoth.
Hit the jump for a bunch of extra images and if you are in the area, you’ll be able to find it on 59 rue du Moulinet, Paris 13th.
