A 350 square meters tribute which becomes the artist greatest achievement in France. The blue-tinted work and the ocher writing give to Leon street public space a strong attraction that resonates with the 'Fraternité Générale' movement as well as in answer to a social movement. Our artist has been working within "Works of art invest the street" project (voted by the Parisians through the City of Paris participative budget). The goal is to promote urban art while boosting the public space through artistic interventions.
