Philippe Baudelocque recently took part in the ongoing BergeStreet event on the banks of the Seine in Paris. Creating one of his signature chalk drawings in public, the Paris-based artist created this interesting, delicate mural inspired by the sculpture of a rhinoceros from the forecourt of the nearby Musée d’Orsay. Baudelocque has been a fan of the museum since his early age, and this is his tribute to it and the “silent but powerful” sculpture (in different perspectives) by Alfred Jacquemard. Along with the drawings of the rhino, the artist wrote the names of his favorite composers that influenced his artistic development and education – Satie, Ravel, Debussy, Berlioz, Bizet, Fauré.
The BergeStreet project is runs from March 8th to April 21st and is located around the National Assembly / Orsay Museum area, with its focus to bring life back onto the streets through workout, sports (skating, freisbee), arts, music and creative workshops.
