Graffitti Art in Paris

French artist Dan23 poses front of his paintings in a social housing tower converted into a temporary street art exhibition in Paris, France, Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2013. Condemned apartments never looked so good _ and only rarely has graffiti met such an enthusiastic welcome. More than 80 artists were given free run of a rundown building that is doomed to destruction in 8 days. The line wraps around the block every day to see the apartments, each of which is its own art installation. (AP Photo/Francois Mori)
