I found this mosaic, La maison de la plage, or beach house, when I was exploring Paris one day on a wall in the 20ème arrondissement.

~A rough translation:

La Maison de la Plage is a moving group derived from squ’art movement whose goal is the use of empty places to live and create from a need for space and a poetic choice aesthetic and philosophical To collectively and creatively occupy free surfaces of the city.

We are driven by notions of exchange, ecology, art and play

Firmly convinced of the vital necessity of everyday poetry, we work for the opening and multiplication of art spaces and creations, free, public, recreational, in the neighborhoods.

We are driven by notions of exchange, ecology, art and play

 

“Life is sometimes only bitter,

If we don’t believe in dreams.”

-Lafilleamericaine
