In response to the article published in L’Est Républicain in January 2018, 2 paintings from the 7th edition of Bien Urbain appear in the articles of L’Est Républicain commenting on the ugliest (EKTA, rue de la Cassotte) and most beautiful (Steve Powers, avenue Gaulard) sites in Besançon. These articles are clearly subjective and humorous and we are flattered to see that in 6 months these paintings fall directly into the Top10 … It seems important to us to clarify that the mission of the artists we invite is not to decorate the city but to interact with it and its inhabitants, which is not always consensual!
