The Walls of Vitry-sur-Seine

The city of Vitry-sur-Seine lies within the southeastern suburbs of Paris. Historically, this commune
has been home to a large, diverse immigrant population, a background that contributed to Vitry being
on the forefront in the development of the French hip hop movement in the 80s. For some time now,
the city has supported a cultural policy of bringing art to all, for example, opening it’s Musée d’Art
Contemporain du Val-de-Marne
in 2005. The city has actively embraced public arts programs, installing
contemporary sculptures throughout public spaces as well as supporting large-scale mural projects.
Thanks to initiatives by artists such as C215, Vitry’s walls bear the work of an international roster of
street artists such as Nunca, Nychos, Roa and Ethos to name but a few. I spent an afternoon in Vitry
earlier this summer and only caught a fraction of the many murals on display.
