Street artists Tim Marsh, Dingo Loco and Anna Conda are taking over the Plateau and Scellier districts until August 15 to the delight of residents.
Three murals are made from July 19 to August 16, 2021.
Introductory street art workshops were organized every weekend during the project.
Frescoes the size of buildings. This summer, the walls of the town of Villeneuve-Saint-Georges (Val-de-Marne) are adorned with new colors with the creation of three new works. As part of the Déambul'art and the museum on the walls projects, street artists Tim Marsh, Dingo Loco and Anna Conda are taking over the Plateau and Scellier districts until August 15 to the delight of residents.
The first two frescoes have already been completed: a multicolored dancing gorilla and a bouquet of roses on a checkerboard background are now visible from the windows of the neighborhood.
As for the last work, carried out by Anna Conda in the northern district of Cellier, the mystery remains unresolved until this weekend.
"The artist prefers to keep the surprise", explains Romain Orhant, member of the GLV agency, specializing in cultural street art projects.
Works submitted to the vote of the inhabitants
“The initiative was born from the collaboration of three actors, summarizes Romain Orhant. We worked with the town hall of Villeneuve Saint-Georges, which notably provided logistical support, as well as with the social landlord Valophis Habitat ”, owner of the walls transformed into canvas paintings, without forgetting the financial support of the DRAC (Direction regional cultural affairs).
Rare phenomenon, this socio-cultural project was carried out with the collaboration of Villeneuvois, each artist proposing two different models to the vote of the inhabitants.
An initiative that is also the subject of introductory street art workshops every weekend.
As for the end of the work, a day of festivities is planned: "There will be entertainment this Saturday," rejoices Marie Destro, in charge of heritage and cultural projects at the town hall of Villeneuve-Saint-Georges.
The "museum on the walls" project in which Déambul'art is part is associated with the youth service for the summer festivities in Villeneuve.
26 works disseminated in the town
“Our city is completely transformed” confirms Marie Destro, in charge of heritage and cultural projects at the town hall of Villeneuve-Saint-Georges. With these last three frescoes, the town will total 26 works scattered in its streets, the virtual tour of which is available on the tourisme-valdemarne site. “When the works are in the street, they are accessible to everyone, that's what we want to highlight, the idea of a museum on the walls,” confirms the project manager.
“We had already carried out similar initiatives in previous years with the same collective of artists,” recalls Vanille La Roche, from the lessor Valophis.
This improves the living environment in these neighborhoods and involves artists with knowledge of the territory, who develop links with the inhabitants.
"As for the feedback on the results of this open-air museum, the news is good, according to Marie Destro:" If we listened to the inhabitants, all the walls of the city would be painted!
