Vitry-sur-Seine is the “capital of Street Art. In the last few years, the city became a window for artists coming from all over the world: it transformed into an outdoor museum where artwork is found at every street corner and blends into the landscape.

Christian Guémy, aka C215, is the pioneer of Street art in Vitry-sur-Seine. He contributed to its development when he established his first workshop in 2009. The city’s streets have since become a large terrain of expression for hundreds of internationally renown artists: C215, Cope2, Bébar, Finbarr, Stew… Graffitis, stencils, mosaics, and much more light up the urban scenery.

During the Spring and Summer, Street art walks with a specialized guide are regularly organized for a personal tour or group tours by appointment.

Here is the video of a tour:
