Paris versus New York

la façade

When artist Vahram Muratyam began his online travel journal documenting his observations on two of the most famous cities on earth, he did not expect that his blog would receive over 1.5 million hits in just a few months, garnering international critical acclaim worldwide.

Muratyam pairs visually striking images with wonderful tag lines, witty and concise in his delivery. “Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities” is, in the artist’s own words, “A friendly visual match between two cities told by a lover of Paris wandering through NewYork.” Now published in a book form, many of his pieces evoke a familiar rivalry between two cities who work well pitted against each other, and told through the eyes of this wonderful graphic designer and artist.
