france sells itself as the chief export of white aristocratic value, whilst its mondialite diaspora, who live and work around Paris, facilitate this rouse. West-African sculptures liaise in storefronts, watching the brits flock to shopping malls.

instead of drawing impressions of the petit filous 'french' child that lives as a marketing product to export to larping tourists, I paint the dark-skinned Parisian kid who exists abundantly.
