Mika teamed up with Olivier Gabet, director of the Paris Museum of Decorative Arts, to give the city a new look. With his older sister Paloma, the British-Lebanese singer went in search of sixty artists to carry out this project... In the end, nine of them (and only!) were selected for this carte blanche: Aurélia Durand, Laurindo Feliciano, Ugo Gattoni, Annick Kamgang, Marie Mohanna, Lamia Ziade, Alexandre Benjamin Navet, Florentine Lamarche-Ovize and Rosa Maria Unda Souki. The Morris columns and other poster spaces in the capital are adorned with new works by these artists, who have respected the Parisian advertising tradition by drawing inspiration from the Belle Époque style. As for Mika, he himself co-designed a poster with his other sister, Yasmine Penniman. A necessary initiative facing the forced closure of Parisian cultural life, which was made possible by JCDecaux and the City of Paris. Thank you for this!
