Since 2010 the Rouen Impressionnée festival transforms the streets of Rouen into works of contemporary art.
For the 2020 edition, and in the continuity of the 2016 edition, the festival aims once again to discover the frescoes of street art.
About twenty local, national and international artists took over the Rive Gauche in the districts of Saint-Sever and Grammont.
Using a wide variety of techniques, from collage to engraving and knitting, the artistic works are deliberately linked to the neighborhoods and their beautiful architecture. Among the many artworks present we have selected the four most beautiful works in our opinion.
German artist Jan Vormann as always used his beloved pieces of LEGO plastic to fill the holes in the worn-out walls of a historic Gothic building bombed during World War II.
The Frenchman Blo gave us a beautiful abstract work. The artist has designed a composition of vibrant and colorful forms to highlight the passage under a monumental arch.
The non-profit cultural organization Citémômes has given new life to an abandoned building. They have entirely covered the walls and roof of a small house with small squares of mesh in homage to Monet.
French artist Nadege Dauvergne painted an intimate portrait of two figures about to kiss. Using touches of spray paint the street artist was able to faithfully reproduce the scene of two lips approaching each other.
