From the Louvre to Street Art

On this tour, you will rediscover the highlights of the Louvre: Mona Lisa, Winged Victory of Samothrace or Venus de Milo. After introducing you to the story of each original artwork, I will share some of the most exciting street art pieces inspired by it: Liberty leading the people wearing Yellow Vests by PBOY, or Raft of the Medusa by Banksy. It is a unique opportunity to hear some little-known facts and gossip that would spike your interest in art. Before the lockdown, I was working in the museum as an official guide. Since the museum is currently closed and travelling is restricted, I would like to invite you to participate in a new, virtual experience, that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home. I hope my virtual tour will give you a new appreciation for both art history and contemporary urban art.

Kasia

Having studied art history for over 17 years, with a specific focus on urban art for over 10 years, I believe I am now a true expert in my field. I graduated in Fine Arts (M2 with honours) and have a strong passion for it! Over the years, I have developed many friendships with leading urban artists, projects and institutions which allows me to enrich my tours with personal experiences from behind the scenes. 

I created my artistic tours in 2013 and was awarded the Kreatywna Polka in 2014 (Most creative Polish Girl on emigration).My tours are elected as the second best of all tours in Paris every year since 2016 on another forum.

    The tour was great! Kasia was very knowledgeable and presented the material well to our student group. We learned a lot and it was really nice to her her perspective and to be able to ask questions on a private tour. Would definitely recommend this tour.
