Marisa suggested that the graffiti of the boy might be the work of a popular graffiti artist Banksy I looked at some of his work and had to agree.  I looked at the photo again and noticed that it had been signed.  This morning I walked down there again to find out who the artist is.  It was signed Jef Aerosol I discovered that Jef Aerosol and Speedy Graphito (the artist who did the robot) are both French graffiti artists.  Their art appearing on the side of the old French Embassy must not be random.  This morning I walked a little further down the road and found a much larger image on the other side of the building.
