Austria: Conchita immortalized in the City of Light

by Fernando Méndez 72 views

The unstoppable hype of Conchita has reached a monumental status with the recent creation of murals depicting the Austrian singer in the streets of Paris.

Conchita Wurst rose to the stars in Copenhagen as one of the most celebrated winners of the Eurovision Song Contest in the last years. Apart from her success as a singer, we have witnessed (and continue to see) her success as an iconic figure.

Conchita participated in the Paris Fashion Week modeling for Jean-Paul Gaultier. This picture has been turned into a piece of artwork in the streets of the French Capital by the Brazilian artist Suriani. Together with it, other pictures inspired by the Austrian Eurovision winner have been completed by the hands of Suriani and they are now part of the panorama of the streets of Paris, together with Tour Eiffel and the Arc de Triomphe. You can enjoy some pictures in the gallery below. The artist made the photos available in his Flickr account.

Now there is a new incentive for Eurovision fans to visit Paris…

Conchita Wurst won the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest with her entry Rise like a phoenix.
