Artist Philippe Pasqua recently completed installation of an impressive Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton that now stands watch over the Seine river in Paris. The structure is made from 350 chrome molded bones and measures a full 21′ x 12′ (3m by 6m). Photographs above courtesy Anthony Gelot.

I love this new piece by street artist Seth, spotted today in Paris. You may remember his work from a few weeks ago in the temporary gallery space at the shuttered Les Bains nightclub. According to StreetArtNews the piece can be found on Rue de Julienne right about here. (via this isn’t happiness)

Built as a municipal bathhouse in the late 19th century, Les Bains-Douches would eventually become one of the hottest night clubs in Paris known simply as Les Bains, a destination for the likes of Kate Moss, Mick Jagger, Johnny Depp and even Andy Warhol. Due to some faulty construction in 2010 the building was declared a safety hazard and is now slated for complete renovation in just a few days to pave way for La Société des Bains, a new space that will open in 2014. In the meantime, owner Jean-Pierre Marois turned over the building to 50 street artists commissioned by Magda Danysz Gallery who have been working since January to turn the decaying building into an endless canvas of artwork.

While the entire space will unfortunately remain closed to the public, photographers Stephane Bisseuil and Jérôme Coton were allowed in to shoot many of the artworks in progress. Above is just a small selection, head over to Les Bains “One Day One Artist” page to see much more. (via creative review)

This gorgeous stop motion video of Paris was shot by filmmaker and photographer Mayeul Akpovi who shot thousands of photos by simply moving his tripod around various scenic areas of the city during the day and night. I really love this style, make sure you watch through to the fireworks at the end. (via vimeo)
