to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

59 Rue Rivoli - Paris

The first time I visited this place I was overwhelmed.  A large six storied building in the centre of Paris was filled with artist-squatters.  I saw great art, and other things.  But the buiding was a death trap, if ever a fire would start here, no-one would get out alive.  The city council decided to close and renovate the place and now it has reopened.  Six levels of artists' studios, a treat (free entrance).

a visit through the studios in tomorrow's post
