I Love You : The Wall, Paris

"I Love You", are powerful words in any language...

Imagine those welcomed words in 250 languages!

Two Artists, Frederic Baron and Claire Kito, have created ... 
"Le Mur Des Je T'Aime"
"I Love You : The Wall"

This was a work of love by the artists..

Frederic Baron knocked on embassy doors and asked neighbors...
writing the collection in notebooks..
The writing by Claire Kito,
 an artist and specialist of oriental calligraphy.

 612 tiles of enameled lava!

And WHY the splashes of  red??

Frederic Baron says ..
"The bursts of color on the fresco represent the pieces of a broken heart,
the heart of a humanity so often torn apart and which the wall tries to gather together"

A place for lovers to meet...

How fitting to be in  Montmartre, Paris...home to so many artists...
small romantic park at Place des Abbesses
behind  Metro Abbesses.
