Street-art
in Rouen

Street-art, also known as urban art, brings together all artistic practices conducted in the street or in public places. It is most often ephemeral, free and accessible free of charge to a wide audience. Rouen hosts many artists who gear the streets and alleys of the Norman city.

How to recognize
street-art?

The different types of styles are:

• tags (in the form of signatures which calligraphy is sometimes even worked to the extreme,) also known as lettering,
• graffiti (a drawing made by a spray can, marker or stencil),
• frescoes (created by spray can, brush, roller, stencil… that can cover large spaces).
• collages (more often works in paper)
• stencils
• stickers
• urban diversions (using the existing street furniture or wall textures)

Local
street-artists

Rouen has many artists such as FERHAT, Dhoa, Method – Graffic Artist Cleaner, Ise, Padame, Golden or Ecloz and several local artists’ collectives such as Collective A31.

The presence of these street-artists also allows them to exhibit on a national or international platform and to put their works on the walls of the Franco streets: Fred Knight, Jef Aerosol or Mister P.
