Michael Beerens is a graffiti artist based in Paris, France. He started making graffiti as a teenager and has slowly begun to progress into the world of street art. This story examines the unclear boundary between the growing popularity of these two worlds. Graffiti and street art have recently been made popular by the likes of Banksy and Obey. Street art is typically considered legal whereas graffiti is not. But to Michael, there isn’t really a difference between the two. He works in public on large paintings but also spends time tagging under a pseudonym. What he does is about creating art, but it's also about exploration and risk and excitement. This story was shot in October 2014 in Paris, France.
