Christopher Genin discovered the art work of Miss.Tic by walking through the popular neighborhoods of Paris, where her creations, like those of Banksy, are offered for free to the city-dwellers. Genin fell in love with these images and he decided to write on them with the scholarly passion that they deserve. In this abundantly illustrated book, he helps us discover and better understand the impudent et original work of this Parisian street artist who is no less a painter than a poet. Genin analyzes the cultural context of Miss.Tic’s work and provides us also with a sober and elegant reading of her style. At the same time, he shows also that this work does not only belong to the street : one has to see no less how these works are born in the artist’s studio, and how they can end up on the walls of a museum.
