Hanging on the outside of the Hotel de Ville are a series of whimsical illustrations by artist Kanako, depicting the harried and quirky Parisian lifestyle, along with clever, satirical captions in French and English. Kanako is the illustrator for the popular website My Little Paris and the book “Les Parisiens”. The book caught the eye of a staff member at the Hotel de Ville and Kanako was commissioned to do a series of 48 drawings and over the summer 1,000 posters were displayed in the Barbès, Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Champs-Elysées neighborhoods. All 48 posters are hanging around the perimeter of the building.
