NICK WALKER - LE CORANCAN Video

British stencil artist, NICK WALKER, hitting up Paris to coincide with the French election and in response to Sarkozy's political pressure to ban the muslim veil, a.k.a. The burka.

From Nick:

"It's particularly tense in Paris. They are in between elections and the reaction is expected to be quite strong. The police discovered the piece 30 minutes after it was completed and we don't expect it to stay up long. After months of wrangling,The government are believed to be only days away from ratifying the ban." (via Woostercollective)
