PSG: in Paris, a fresco to welcome Messi

It is by this kind of attention that we measure the popularity of a sportsman like Leo Messi. Since this Sunday morning, the Argentine genius has had a huge fresco intended to welcome him to Paris. He may never set foot there, but this graffiti of approximately 18 mx 4 m can be found in the working-class districts of the capital, rue Ordener, halfway between the Marx-Dormoy and Marcadet-Poissonniers metro stations (18th arrondissement ).

The graffiti artist C-TRA took two and a half days to create this fresco with the effigy of the Parisian number 30. “I wanted to be welcomed so I allowed myself to do so. The least thing is to welcome him, ”says the artist congratulated by passers-by.

“It’s very beautiful”, testifies this Sunday walker. “Since this morning, people stop, discuss and take pictures of the work. If I can share this paint before it’s covered, I’m happy, ”says C-TRA. Leo Messi is due to play his first match with PSG this Sunday evening in Reims (8:45 p.m.) even if it is a happy coincidence for the artist.

“At first I wanted to do this around August 15th but it was too hot. I just wanted to finish before the end of the month because then there will be people who will come and graffiti on the wall, ”explains C-TRA. A few hours before the match in Reims, it was just the right timing.
