Street art and Montalbanais illustrious in Villebourbon

at Montauban

Fresque Street Art Villebourbon
  • It smells of painting and enthusiasm. On a wall in the hall, Place Lalaque, a fresco representing four illustrious Montalbanaises takes shape. Brushes and bombs in hand, masks on the nose, the young people of the Municipal Council of Youth (CMJ) follow with application the advice of graffiti artist Alexis Diermer, better known under the name of Tigre. In addition to bringing a new aesthetic to the hall of the place Lalaque, children have chosen to deliver a message by the realization of this fresco. They decide to honor four emblematic female figures of the City: "We would like every Montalbanian to know these characters, these women are examples for us, they prove that certain areas of activity are not only reserved for boys" explain Amelia and Luna, two young people of the CMJ.
    After several researches, the young people have naturally chosen Olympe de Gouges, pioneer of feminism, humanist and woman of letters but also Brigitte Deidier, world champion of judo, Caroline Aigle, first French woman to become fighter pilot and finally Janine Garrisson, historian and politician.

    Accompanied by Tigre, they deliver their ideas and their desires. After many exchanges, several tests, they finally arrive at the realization. All the afternoon of May 8, they realized the background of the fresco. Then, during several evenings, in small groups, they applied themselves on the details to offer to each one a fresco full of life and meaning.
