Where’s the Renard…? Part 3

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. ♦

Where’s the…Renard? Part 2

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.

Rue Clemenceau*

Why is it so interesting? Well, it’s an énigme:

Petite Rue des Carmes*

Why are they so present?

Rue Clemenceau*

Is it an initiation?

Le Cours Sextius*

…A prank?

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)?

Rue Papassaudi**

I still have no answers to these questions, but more renards keep popping up!

Rue d’Italie*

…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.

Rue des Tanneurs*

So, until the résolution comes to me,

Rue des Marseillais*

I’m still on the “Where’s the renard?” quest! ♦

Where’s the…Renard?

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

Rue Marechal Foch*

He (ou she) comes in noir

Rue Entrecasteaux*

…and in blanc.

Rue Fabrot

Rue Fabrot*

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!

Rue Thiers*

Rue Thiers*

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!

Rue d’Italie*

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…

Rue Mejanes**

…or the ville itself…

Rue de Montigny**

but whatever the cas,

Place des Chapeliers**

I’m on the “Where’s Waldo the renard?” fad. ♦
