The first monograph ever published of the very famous French street artist duo from Saint Etienne ELLA & PITR. These artists are internationally renown for their gigantic and magnificent  frescoes.

Since 2007, ELLA & PITR have shared their life and their artistic career together. After an unexpected and unpredictable  meeting in a street of their native city, they have rarely been apart ! Here combines a beautiful love story and amazing artistic adventure.  Since then they have painted walls, floors, and roofs all over the world displaying  characters out of the ordinary such as colossi asleep, big birds with heavy wings, ogres, facetious old men,  Icarus fallen on the floor, women with beards, stones bearers  …  Such an unusual gallery that is also found in their serigraphs, anamorphoses, and on billboards that the artist couple  love to create on.
If in their artwork a comical theme is present ,  humor and poetry are strongly represented.  This unique and extremely special artistic universe has touched those from all walks of life  as you will discover   in the texts written throughout this book.
