In the artist’s own words: “After climbing hundreds of old, stone stairs to the top of the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Paris, I saw graffiti. At first I was disappointed. This landmark had been defaced! But then, I looked closer when the bold, black sharpie caught my eye. I was standing in the Sacred Heart of Paris, the City of Love, and the city was talking to me. It was saying “Love is us, love is Paris.”
