Associate artist in 2015 and long-time friend of the festival, Eltono always finds new excuses to play with the city. He spoke at the “Exhibiting Today: Urban Art” symposium and took the opportunity to offer festivalgoers a new urban drift.
With the help of a map and guided by a random roll of the dice, have fun getting lost in the city for half an hour. Mark your passage by drawing your path on the map and sticking stickers with your initials along your route! All the maps will then be sent back to Eltono to create a collective work of art.

The French artist Eltono (1975) began his activities in Madrid in 1999, in 2010 he left to live for 4 years in Beijing to finally return to France and settle in the southwest. Stroller, obstinate pedestrian and chronic observer, for years he has used public space as a support, workshop and source of inspiration. His sensitivity towards everything that happens around him and his knowledge of the nature of the street – its whims and unpredictability – are his main tools when generating his works.
