Who Is Levalet ?

Charles Leval is an artist and teacher in Paris. In his spare time, he’s a street artist that goes by the name Levalet.
Levalet is known for creatively incorporating the surroundings into his wheat paste street art, often using objects already embedded into walls.

Especially interesting is this piece depicting the mythical creature Minotaur. In Greek mythology, the Minotaur was a monster with the body of a man and the head and tail of a bull. The Minotaur was the offspring of the Cretan Queen Pasiphae and a majestic bull.

Due to the Minotaur’s monstrous form, King Minos ordered to build a huge Labyrinth to house the beast.
And that is why Levalet brilliantly displayed the Minotaur with a little map of the Labyrith.
