Google Translate will not help you have stoner sex in Paris

Google this week released an updated version of its Google Translate app, with two major new features. The first lets you point your phone camera at a sign or piece of text and see a translation of it in real-time. The second instantly translates speech into different languages. All you have to do is press the microphone icon on the app’s interface, select the two languages you want to bridge, and speak into the microphone on your device. The app will automatically recognize which of the two languages you’re speaking, and a female voice will repeat it to you in the other language.

Street art in Paris by Pejac

street-art-paris-france-pejac-2

A well-renowned street artist, Pejac has an entirely new and creative approach to the usual technique of street art. He recently visited Paris again for leaving his artsy footprint behind the walls of the street with innovative art. The inventive collections of amazing works of street art by Pejac have multiple layers that interact with each other. He works mostly in black and white representing graphics and representations known to all as the bar code, the scarecrow, the world map.

Pejac is also an accomplished painter and illustrator on more traditional surfaces like canvas. Some examples of his street art is mentioned below in the picture:

Here a man is throwing a water-balloon on the wall that splats revealing Manet’s famous “The Luncheon on the Grass.”

This is born from a crack in the wall that inspired Pejac to paint a surreal-looking door, perhaps leading to the world where the artist’s imagination lives.
