A good place to start the street art trail in Papeete is in front of the ferry terminal. As the Moorea ferries come and go, take a look at the 3D image on the floor. Painted by Léon Keer, it portrays a joyful group of robots which come to life as you walk by. A ‘trompe l’oeil’ which amuses both children and adults alike.
Leave the ferry terminal and head for Papeete Market where three local artists came together to paint this four-color fresco. Abuz, Jops and HTJ are well-known names in the world of Tahitian street art and this fresco, which represents the face of a tiki, was painted by them in 2016. It features all the symbols that characterize their work, including the tiki, the shark and the vahine.
