David Walker New Mural in Lieusaint – France

“Parisian suburban  cities  continue to take on colour” 

A new street art festival is  born:  Wall Street Art Grand Paris Sud


Beginning in 2015, the street art festival of “Evry centre Essonne”  welcomed about  fifty artists in  the six cities of the local council.
Henceforth the agglomeration community is called Grand Paris Sud. It has grown from 6 to 24 municipalities. A new street art Fest has been created and has been  named  “Wall Street Art”.

A great personality of Urban art in France, Gautier Jourdain now ensures the artistic direction and succeeds to Nicolas Laugero-Lasserre. Gautier is the co-founder (with his wife Mathilde) of the Galerie Mathgoth in Paris.  He is also Artistic Director of the iconic MUR Oberkampf  association in Paris (of which he is a founding member), as well as Artistic Director of the national program 100 Murs pour la Jeunesse “hundred walls for youth”.
While continuing the previous work , the idea is to give a second breath to the festival so that it still gains in notoriety.
The majority of the artworks that will be realized will be large murals on facades of buildings. Internationally renowned artists will be invited to participate in this project.

The first to participate in this event is David Walker. Here’s his most recent mural  created  in Seine et Marne (suburb area of Paris) in the heart of the town of Lieusaint. This is a portrait of a young woman named YULI.
After David Walker, some of the most famous street artists around the world will be invited to paint. Such as  Case Maclaim, Fintan Magee, C215, Astro …
The next mural to be undertaken will be painted by the  German street artist  ECB. He will begin his mural on June 6th in the Pyramids neighborhood in Evry.
