Acrylic paint and posca on wood, Ruelle Billard, Besançon (FR)
Magnetic went to Zaragoza from September 7 to 14, 2013
RECOVER THE STREETS
Five European events and cities (Besançon, Cologne, Zaragoza, Toulouse and Zagreb) collaborated for this event during which the selected artists transformed abandoned site into living spaces. In Besançon, the Billard lane in the Battant district has been unused until now because it is considered dirty and dangerous. After six days of intensive work, it has now become a pleasant passage in the neighborhood. Thanks to the City of Besançon for having cleaned and prepared the place, to the Advisory Council of the Inhabitants of Battant and to the neighboring owners including Grand Besançon Habitat!
Magnetic is a multifaceted freelance artist. He is just as interested in painting a living model as in street art or woodworking. His starting environment is graphic design and web design. He grew up in the green landscapes of the Besançon countryside, where he was early introduced to the field of art by his family. As a teenager, his passion for skateboarding, music and snowboarding definitely pushed him on the paths of urban graphic culture.
