"During the confinement, we've all done our races, we have all seen cashiers sacrifice. Me, I was comfortably confined to the home as most of the French people", explains Christian Guémy, aka C215. Aisha Issadounène worked as a cashier for 30 years at the Crossroads of Saint-Denis, and died march 26. First victim of the Covid-19 among the staff of the group of large-scale distribution. The artist fell on his portrait in the press, and has contacted the mayor of Saint-Ouen and the family of Aisha Issadounène to ask their permission to pay tribute to him in his neighborhood.

"It has an amazing story, it really was a person copy, eager to help, who was beloved of the world's largest, a person invested in the associative", sets out the graffiti writer known worldwide, who is accustomed to associate with her portrait art to causes close to her heart as the freedom of the press or the precariousness. Nora Issadounène, the little sister of Aisha, this while the artist was doing the mural with stencil, is appreciative. "The portrait is magnificent, breath-she moved. It was a person eager to help, everyone knew her in the neighborhood."

What a circus. They will bring us a fresco of Devedjian and Goasguen on the façade of the national assembly, all of a sudden ? And a fresco of Ms. Lucette Chombier on the facade of the nursing home of Crépy-en-Valois ? And so on ? It will be necessary to 29000 frescoes, it's going to be the Sistine Chapel, only better.
