Well it has been just over two weeks since the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday 13th November which saw a tragic loss of 130 lives, marking the deadliest attacks on French soil since the Second World War. Following the horrific attacks there has been a series of gestures from nations and states offering condolences and unity exemplified through the projection of the Tricolour on landmarks around the globe, with #prayforparis on social media sites and in some cases in the form of a painting as demonstrated in the four works we have spotted about London in the last couple of weeks, with a range of artists from different backgrounds putting together fitting and touching tributes.
