Fat Riot Invades Montmartre Streets in Paris

Wheat-Pasting Botero, David Gouny Rolls Out a New Collection

Like a tray of hot chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies these one-off hand painted wheat pastes have been just been served in the area of Montmartre to the streets of Paris. A Botero for the urban art fan, Street Artist David Gouny has specialized in plumply chunky everyday characters and idealized rotund super sheroes in bikinis and high heels in top-down convertibles since the mid-2000s.

Often comical, fashionable, or even erotic, the strutting ladies in Gouny’s scenes can be comical in their placement or tableau. With this little chubby collection Gouny appears to widen his family of characters to include a more cultural references than previously- including one Russian hatted tribute to the activists Pussy Riot. As ever, the central focus continues as the heralded full-figured gals he loves who have so much to offer.
