Paris – La Defense is prepared to stage a very important cultural event. This is an area that isn’t always open to the public for such open exploration and artistic creativity. That is why Urban Week 2019 is so exciting to anyone with an interest in street culture. Visitors can come and wander the site for free to watch street artists create outdoor masterpieces, urban sports advocates showing off their skills and much more. There will be music, food, shopping and other pop-up experiences dotted around the festival site. This even includes tattoo artists, for those that want to add some ink in a more unusual location.

We get drawn in by all the gold and the beauty of the figures. This is great in a gallery with a painting before us. But, Klimt’s works take on a whole new life when we begin to dissect it and go deeper into the themes.
