A playground as a Mondrian’s painting

Between two buildings of the ninth district of Paris, the basketball court of the Duperré street was renovated and primped into a work of art dedicated to the practice of the orange ball.

Mondrian as if reborn from its ashes to exchange the support of the canvas against a basketball court. In all fairness, the newly renovated playground of 22, rue Duperré, the Parisian neighborhood of Pigalle, is a gem in terms of street art. Getting a first time in 2009, the site has been enhanced with cubic forms – recalling the gridded compositions of red, yellow, blue and white of the artist – which are superimposed curves fixing the center circle and firing lines.
