Dernière mise à jour : 3 juil. 2021

With the desire to bring a pop of colour into the city centre of La Roche-sur-Yon, the artist Matth Velvet, himself a native of the Vendée capital, was selected by the local committee to decorate the facade of the former Hôtel Saint-Jean.

From the 27th of August to 3rd of September 2020 and covering 110m², Matth Velvet's mural is inspired by Cyel's cultural centre, reflecting its activities such as music, dance and photography.

"The image evokes a choreography through a festive and popular scene. The framing, the point of view and the focal length (zoom) suggest that it is a photo taken by a spectator observing the scene from a distance. Dance and photography blend into the world of the street, into the public space" Matth Velvet
