So, thanks to my cousin, I may have found the culprit behind these renards!
Rue de la Cepede*
I don’t know if they are responsable for all of them…
Ave Robert Schuman*
or just a few…
Cours Sextius (next to IPN)*
But, I have raison to believe that they’re responsable for at least a few of them.
Rue des Magnans**
Who are They?
Rue Joseph Cabassol*
I bet you’re just dying to know…
Boulevard du Roi René***
Well, you can check out their Tumblr here. ♦

This post took a dive into the industrial-stone forêt that is Aix and discovered renards (foxes)…Everywhere!
Rue de la glacière*
It’s really the only type of graffiti (in Aix, bien-sûr) that is intéressante.
Why is it so interesting? Well, it’s an énigme:
Petite Rue des Carmes*
Why are they so present?
Is it an initiation?
Le Cours Sextius*
Rue Lisse des Cordeliers*
Is it from high-schoolers or université students?
Rue Irma Moreau*
Is it a “gang” (the French idéal, not the Américain)?
I still have no answers to these questions, but more renards keep popping up!
…And let’s not forget the renards with the birds!
Avenue de Tübingen*
It’s making me crazy!
Copropriété Les Terrasses du Roy -Rond Point Irma Moreau*
I want to solve the énigme!
Rue des Tanneurs*
So, until the résolution comes to me,
Rue des Marseillais*
I’m still on the “Where’s the renard?” quest! ♦

Some pretty awful graffiti can be found in Aix; however, there’s one style that m’intrigue: Le renard, or fox.
Rue des Tanneurs**
He’s (ou she’s) everywhere!
Rue Marechal Foch*
He (ou she) comes in noir…
…and in blanc.
With a crow (see: Les Fables de la Fontaine: Le Corbeau et le Renard (in both English and Français))…
La place de l’avenue Georges Pompidou (This photo was taken in Février 2016.)
or without a crow.
Le Cours Sextius*
Some streets even have multiple renards!
He’s (ou she’s) usually on the same side of the street…
Rue Fernand DOL*
…however, every now-and-then, he (ou she) appears on the opposite side!
He (ou she) not only appears on the sides of streets and allées,
Allée Jean de la Fontaine**
but also inside condo complexes!
Les Terrasses du Roy (the side on Rue Irma Moreau)**
I don’t know if it’s a student initiation prank…
Rue Victor Leydet**
…or a gang…
…or the ville itself…
Rue de Montigny**
but whatever the cas,
Place des Chapeliers**
I’m on the “Where’s
Waldo the renard?” fad. ♦
