Le Haut Paris - Belleville

Curated by Enfant Précoce

Belleville Park is one of the best non-touristic views of Paris. Usually, it’s nearly impossible to get a straight horizon view in Paris, here you can.

This park is not crowded and remains my secret place to have a date. You can go to romantic & jazzy bars just behind the top of the park.

This refreshing view comes with a price: you have to climb a lot of steps to access it since it’s located on a little hill. When you come down, don’t forget to have a look at my mural painting located in Oberkampf Street.

About the Author

Enfant Précoce is a painter, born in Cameroon in 1989. He discovered art with his uncle Malam Essoua, a sculptor, whose life as a free artist inspired him. And, he dances. This first love for movement led Francis Essoua alias Enfant Précoce to paint, with which he fell in love in 2013. His canvases mix bodies, sometimes stretched, sometimes relaxed, hands apart, legs projected between African faces and masks. A thousand and one colors bloom. It is the color of Enfant’s tales. Enfant Précoce tells us stories that touch on the universal. The world takes the form of a myth animated by its characters like apparitions captured in color and disproportion. The storyteller's voice is in our eyes. Everywhere they look. He questions, he evaluates. Something of a presence, the gesture, inhabits his creations, apparently spontaneous, but which, nevertheless, obey a constraint. And while Enfant Précoce shares, Enfant Précoce goes on a quest. Triangles nose, clover nose; fleshy or scarlet mouths; large hands and open hands; flower garden… he explores. His paintings are an invitation to decipher signs, rebuses, symbols; an invitation to play on cultural variations. 
In the end, obviously, the emotion.
