Within 24 hours of the horrific terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo, a group of Parisian artists came together to create a memorial mural at the Palais de Tokyo contemporary art museum in Paris. Calling themselves “French Kiss”, the collective (which includes Cokney, Lek & Sowat, Hugo Vitrani, Nicholas Gzeley, André, Felipe Batista, and Alëxone) painted a poignant 50 meter-long mural.
