Painting mural, Ruelle Billard, Besançon (FR)
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. Thank’s 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!
Mario, also known as Sretan Bor, is one of the most recognized young authors in the Balkan region. Avant-garde artist, he has already experienced a wide range of media and made several interventions in public space, taking the form of murals, illustrations, installations and animation.
