Mimi the Clown from my recent trip to America.

This one is in the Five Points neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida. Here’s a close-up.

I first encountered Mimi’s work while posting my own work up around the Marolles neighborhood in Brussels. This piece is long since gone:

I was pleased to be able to attend his Open House Studio event last month in his home city of Lille, France and was able to buy a few of his smaller pieces:

3 works by Mimi the Clown (in my private collection)
